Champions for CEC’s Mission

The CEC Partnership Council is comprised of influential and successful business and community leaders who actively champion CEC’s mission. By guiding, networking, advocating, and fundraising for our effort to move the Santa Barbara region away from fossil fuels, the Partnership Council inspires confidence in our work and connects us with people who can make a difference.

To deepen their knowledge about issues related to fossil fuel use, the Partnership Council hosts quarterly private breakfasts and occasional energy symposiums. As time permits, members of this working council also assist with special projects, regularly attend CEC functions, serve on other CEC committees and act as spokespersons for our work.
