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.  


Membership Committee

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 the first Tuesday of every month from 10:00 Pacific to 11:00 Pacific. Contact Gabe Boeckman at for more information.


  • Chair: David Benson, K&L Gates
  • Vice Chair: Reeves Clippard, A&R Solar


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.


The Government Affairs Committee meets on the first Tuesday of every month from 3:00 Pacific to 4:00 Pacific. For more information, contact Tom Ranken at


  • Chair: David Allen, McKinstry
  • Vice Chair: Tom Redd, Reklaim
  • Vice Chair: Russ Weed, UniEnergy Technologies


Events Committee

The Events Committee plans CleanTech Alliance educational and networking events, including the Breakfast Series, the Summer Schmoozefest, the CleanTech Showcase and our Annual Meeting. Committee members are instrumental in identifying topics, speakers, learning objectives, venues and sponsors.


The Events Committee meets on the second Wednesday of every month from 9:30 Pacific to 10:30 Pacific. For more information, contact Sharon Schierle at


  • Chair: David Beck, One Strategic Capital
  • Vice Chair: Thom Kroon, Thomas James International

Commercialization Committee

The CleanTech Entrepreneurial Support Network helps clean technology startups speed their path to commercialization. The committee fosters collaboration across CleanTech Alliance members and more than 40 cleantech support organizations from across the region.


The CleanTech Entrepreneurial Support Network meets on the fourth Wednesday of every other month from 11:00 Pacific to 12:00 Pacific. Contact Gabe Boeckman at for more information.
