The People Behind the Partnership

The board of directors and the management committee oversee the Alberta NAWMP Partnership, advance its goals and objectives and assign priorities to the policy and communications committees. The work of these committees has greatly advanced the Alberta NAWMP Partnership’s identity, credibility and opportunities within the province.

Ducks Unlimited Canada provides administration support for NAWMP in Alberta. A dedicated Alberta NAWMP coordinator reports to the Partnership’s board of directors, facilitates the committees, is responsible for the implementation of Alberta NAWMP activities and manages the associated budget.
