Our Leadership

Board of Directors

VCE is managed by a Board of Directors with designated representatives from each of the communities it serves: 2 each from the Woodland, Davis and Winters City Councils, and 2 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 2 representatives from each VCE jurisdiction – City of Woodland, City of Davis, City of Winters, and unincorporated Yolo County and 3 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. At this time, Valley Clean Energy (VCE) is accepting applications for each jurisdiction seat (Davis, Woodland, Winters, and unincorporated Yolo County) for the Community Advisory Committee (CAC). Additional information and the application can be found here: CAC Description and Application. To be considered, please submit an application by Tuesday, May 31, 2022 by 4 p.m. via either email to Alisa.Lembke@ValleyCleanEnergy.org or mail to Valley Clean Energy, 604 2nd Street, CA 95616.
