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.
