The Board

Each LEEDCo member appoints a LEEDCo Board Member, who is responsible for providing strategic direction and authorizing major management decisions. For this reason, LEEDCo's Board represents a multitude of community interests along Lake Erie's southern coast, better positioning LEEDCo to build an offshore wind industry that balances the need for new clean energy sources with the need to protect Lake Erie's existing uses.
