Board & Leadership

IMG_9469Balanced Leadership

AWWI’s board sits together at a common table to collaborate on shared goals. Board members are drawn equally from the wind industry and science and conservation organizations.  This diversity and balance is an essential part of AWWI’s charter and is required by our bylaws.
