Central Mountainview Advisory Group (CMAG)
The Central Mountainview Advisory Group (CMAG) formed in April 2005 when coal bed methane activity arrived in the Olds area. A group of landowners looking for more information met and decided to form a synergy group to work with industry and regulators (mainly the EUB) regarding ALL forms of energy activity in the area.
Today, CMAG continues to work with both energy companies undertaking both CBM and conventional oil and gas activity in the area. The group has expanded it's membership to include other organizations and issues impacting the community, such as energy transmission, airsheds, watersheds, agriculture and land use.
All members of the community are welcome to participate. Participation requires adhering to a Code of Conduct and the Terms of Reference.
Community, energy industry and regulators working to share information, promote education and develop mutually beneficial plans for all stakeholders.
