Call for Committee Membership

The CHESC Steering Committee launched a new committee member application process this year! Our hope is that by formalizing the process of applying for committees, CHESC can engage a broader variety of stakeholders in the program’s leadership.

Best Practice Award Selection Committees

The best practice award selection committees will review applications for best practice award winners.   Any student, staff, or faculty member from a college or university in California with experience or knowledge of the below topics can participate on an award selection committee.  Utility representatives and representatives of the UC/CSU/Utility and CCC/IOU/Utility partnerships are also invited to join.  If your campus is planning to apply for an award, you can still participate.  What will happen in cases like this is that if for example Jane Doe from UCSB wants to participate on the transportation committee, but someone from UCSB applies for an award in that category.  Jane will still be able to grade proposals from CSU, private college, and CCC campuses but will not grade the UC proposals in that category due to the conflict of interest.  For more information, please visit the Best Practice Award Selection Committees membership and application process page.

We are currently looking for committee members for the following award selection committees:

  • Food Service
  • Student Leadership
  • Academics (covers three award categories)
  • Transportation
  • Waste Reduction
  • Water Efficiency/Site Water Quality
  • Partnerships (covers two award categories)
  • Communications
  • Planning
  • Social Equity
  • Energy Efficiency (covers two award categories)
  • Renewables
  • Overall Sustainable Design
  • Innovations

Steering Committee:

The steering committee is the highest-level decision making body for the conference.  It serves to create continuity within the conference from year to year.  The committee also provides the perspective of all four systems of higher education with connections to a diverse set of campuses and system offices.  This helps us remain responsive to our diverse constituency. The steering committee focuses on decisions that affect the core mission, principles, vision, and sustainability of the conference.  For more information, please visit the Steering Committee membership and application process page.

We are currently looking to fill in a few spots on the CHESC Steering Committee:

  • Student of a California Community College (2 year term)
  • Student of a Private College or University in California (2 year term)
  • Faculty of a Community College in California (1 year term)
  • Staff of a Community College in California (1 year term)
  • For other positions, we expect to have openings in Fall 2018
