The Redwood Coast Energy Authority Board of Directors established a Community Advisory Committee (CAC) to support RCEA public engagement efforts and to provide decision-making support and input to the RCEA Board.

The CAC can have up to 15 members. Eleven are nominated by RCEA Board Directors, and four additional members are seated through an open application process. Final CAC member appointments are made by the full Board. Members serve 2-year terms and must be Humboldt County residents.

CAC meetings are held bimonthly. Additional CAC meetings are held to address specific topics or situations as needed.

CAC meetings are open to the public and are held at 6 p.m. on the second Tuesday of every odd-numbered month at the Jefferson Community Center Auditorium, 1000 B Street in Eureka. See MAP for ADA accessibility.  Zoom online and phone meeting participation is available for these meetings.

For information about RCEA’s governing body, the Board of Directors, please visit the Board of Directors page.
