Stakeholder Engagement Office

The Energy Resources Conservation Board (ERCB) is pleased to announce the creation of the Stakeholder Engagement Office, which will provide strategic advice and guidance to all areas of the organization involved with stakeholder engagement

Tom McGee was appointed Manager of the Stakeholder Engagement Office and will champion the continuing evolution of the organization’s stakeholder engagement and outreach initiatives.   Tom has many years of experience in public service; including appointments to the Energy and Utilities Board (EUB) and the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) Boards, as well as elected service in municipal government.

Deborah Eastlick and Bruce Gladue have also joined the Stakeholder Engagement Office.  Deborah has been involved with public consultation initiatives with the ERCB for many years and most recently held the position of Manager, Advisory and Regulatory Change in the Field Surveillance and Operations Branch.  Bruce has led the Aboriginal Relations efforts of the ERCB since 2006.  As a member of the Community and Aboriginal Relations (CAR) Team in the Field Surveillance and Operations Branch, he contributed to the development of a leading edge Aboriginal program at the ERCB.  

The Stakeholder Engagement Office will be a small centralized team connected to a larger community of engagement practitioners at the ERCB.  Tom notes that, “this is an opportunity, as an organization, to foster a culture of engagement at the ERCB.  Through our ongoing efforts and new initiatives to reach out to the public, industry, local and provincial governments, Aboriginal communities, and other interested parties, we will better understand and address our stakeholder needs and expectations”.

The Stakeholder Engagement Office can be reached by phone at 403-297-8311 or by mail at the Energy Resources Conservation Board, Suite 1000, 250 – 5 Street SW, Calgary, Alberta, T2P 0R4.
