Advisory Board

The advisory board is a permanent standing board to provide advice and insight to the Center of Excellence from the perspective of industry, education, labor, and the community. The board helps the Center achieve its mission by ensuring that programs and projects advance the needs of the energy sector within the region. The diversity of membership provides an invaluable resource to Center Staff and program partners to easily access information and contacts throughout the industry. The strength of the advisory board was a key component in the elevation of the center from a state organization to a Department of Energy recognized Regional Center of Excellence.
