New Board of Directors Roles for WECC’s Robin Lisowski and Dan Streit

We’re excited to share that two WECC staff members have recently assumed new Board of Directors positions with local sustainability organizations Sustain Dane and Dane Buy Local.

Robin Lisowski, Director of New Business, was named President of Sustain Dane’s Board of Directors this January, having served on the board since 2015. Sustain Dane offers a variety of business and community programs, with the aim of establishing Dane County as a national leader in sustainability. WECC is a Sustain Dane member and supporter of their annual Badger Bioneers Conference. Additionally, WECC graduated from Sustain Dane’s MPower Business Champion program in 2016.

Robin has 20 years of operational and sustainability leadership experience, and is an advocate for sustainable development, both personally and professionally. In her role at WECC, Robin directs the development of emerging market products, designing innovative programs that result in reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Robin also serves as WECC’s sustainability officer, and led efforts to support WECC in achieving a net zero carbon footprint two years in a row.

Also in January, Dan Streit joined the Board of Directors of Dane Buy Local. Dane Buy Local works to promote development of local businesses, and encourage consumers to purchase goods and services locally.

As WECC’s Program Manager for Environmental Sustainability Services, Dan is responsible for developing and implementing programs for corporate and local government clients to improve supply chain sustainability and calculate their carbon footprints. Due to the many environmental benefits of purchasing locally, Dan’s partnership with Dane Buy Local is a perfect fit.

Dan has been involved with Dane Buy Local since 2016, when WECC became a member. As part of his board responsibilities, Dan serves on the Membership Committee, where he helps to recruit and onboard new individual and business members.

We’re thrilled to be partnered with Sustain Dane and Dane Buy Local, and are excited for their continued accomplishments in the Madison area.
