CEAC is led by a board of directors of five community leaders and will work closely with other local business and environmental groups. CEAC focuses on strengthening Addison County’s economic, environmental and social resilience to achieve deep reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and support a thriving ecosystem of people, businesses and institutions.

The organization’s board is chaired by Steve Maier, a former member of the Vermont House of Representatives who previously headed the Addison County Solid Waste District and is now executive director of Vermont’s Free & Referral  Clinics. Other board members are Bristol Energy Committee member Sally Burrell, journalist and healthcare business consultant Greg Dennis, retired epidemiologist and current climate data expert Richard Hopkins, Middlebury College Assistant Director for Community-Based Learning (Environmental Studies and Center for Community Engagement) Diane Munroe; and Spence Putnam, former vice president of Vermont Teddy Bear and a past executive director of Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility.
