Our Leadership

Board of Directors

VCE is managed by a Board of Directors with designated representatives from each of the communities it serves: two each from the Woodland, Davis and Winters City Councils, and two from the Yolo County Board of Supervisors. The VCE Board Members are appointed annually by their respective agencies and are not paid by VCE to serve on our board.

The Board meets monthly in open meetings, which the public is invited to attend. We want you to know what we’re planning, and we’d like to hear your thoughts and opinions. If you want to receive information about upcoming meetings and agendas, sign up to receive meeting notices and other important information. Click here for our meeting schedule.

Community Advisors

At the Board’s October 14, 2021 regular meeting, the structure of the CAC changed to an 11-member Community Advisory Committee (CAC) composed of two representatives from each VCE jurisdiction – City of Woodland, City of Davis, City of Winters, and unincorporated Yolo County and three At-Large seats. The CAC meets monthly, with the goal of providing thoughtful input to the Board and representing their communities and each of the member agencies with their various perspectives. We’d like to have you join us to contribute your ideas. Positions on this Advisory Board are voluntary.

Would you like to contribute your expertise to the CAC? Consider joining the Advisory Committee. VCE is accepting applications for consideration to fill an unincorporated Yolo County vacancy.  For more information, please review an application. If interested, please submit your application either electronically to Alisa.Lembke@ValleyCleanEnergy.org or via mail to our offices located at 604 2nd Street, Davis, CA 95616.
