EDMONTON, Nov. 28 /CNW/ - The Clean Air Strategic Alliance (CASA) is

Chomlak's career in air quality started over ten years ago in the air

confined feeding operations, renewable energy and the electricity framework,
among others. Chomlak was a recipient, with the Multi-Stakeholder Group on
Particulate Matter (PM) and Ozone, of a Premier's Award of Excellence in 2001
for her role in developing a plan to prevent smog formation in Alberta.
"Kerra brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in multi-stakeholder
engagement to the CASA table," said Peter Watson, CASA president (government
sector) from Alberta Environment.
Martha Kostuch, CASA vice-president (NGO sector) and member of the
Prairie Acid Rain Coalition, added, "Her fair and open communication style
enables all three sectors to participate equally and effectively in CASA."
CASA vice-president (industry sector), Dave Byler of Suncor Energy, said,
"Energetic leadership will be a tremendous asset as CASA undertakes its
biggest challenge yet: developing a new Clean Air Strategy for Alberta."
Chomlak resides in Edmonton with her husband, Zane, and two young sons.
The Clean Air Strategic Alliance is a non-profit multi-stakeholder
partnership of government, industry, and non-government organizations which
