The 2014 term of the Port Hope Project Citizen Liaison Group (CLG) is underway with six newly appointed members taking their places on the volunteer committee. The 12-member group of Port Hope residents brings together a broad cross-section of community interests including the environment, education, business, health and community life. The CLG is dedicated to the exchange of information between the PHAI Management Office and broader community. Members work to develop a technical understanding of the project so they can play a role in strengthening community awareness.
At its first meeting of 2014 in March, CLG members discussed their priorities for the upcoming year, which include increasing the visibility of the CLG in order to raise public awareness about the project.
The group meets four times a year. At its final meeting of each year, the CLG will host a public event to provide the community with a forum to discuss the Port Hope Project. Vacancies for the CLG are publicly advertised every year in local papers and on the PHAI website. Members serve two-year staggered terms.
