A strong board is the backbone to a successful organization. Our Board of Directors is comprised of strong community leaders coming from a variety of backgrounds, with a variety of skills and specialties. But they do hold one thing in common – they know that together, they can help Nexus Energy Center build smarter energy communities in Alabama and provide a brighter energy future for generations to come.

The board meets the third week of most months. For questions concerning board development, or if you are interested in serving, contact Keith Lowhorne at keith@nexusenergycenter.org.
