CleanTech Alliance committees are a popular way to get engaged and meet other Alliance members while helping to build the region’s cleantech economy. Each committee is led by a member of the CleanTech Alliance Board of Directors. You must be an Alliance member to participate.
The CleanTech Alliance Membership Committee serves as the front line to attract and retain membership. An ambassador program helps committee members connect with cleantech industry leaders from across the region, filling them in on membership benefits.
The Membership Committee meets on the first Thursday of the month from 1:00 – 2:00 PM Pacific. If you are interested in joining, contact Rachelle Ames.
- Chair: Jennifer Harper, Energy Northwest
Government Affairs Committee
The CleanTech Alliance Government Affairs Committee analyzes public policy issues relevant to our diverse membership, then articulates recommendations to the Board of Directors for an Alliance position. It is through these efforts that the strength of a collective industry voice can have greater impact than any singular voice.
- Chair: Susan Champlain, Boeing

Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (JEDI) Task Force
The CleanTech Alliance is reaffirming its commitment to Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) by assembling a task force to help us evaluate our progress towards our goals. The task force will help us to ensure that all our work is grounded in our JEDI objectives, from our hiring practices, to selecting speakers for events, to mentoring and more.
We anticipate the task force will meet quarterly. If you are interested in being a part of this group or want to recommend a great candidate, please contact Mel Clark.
