  • New Conservancy Board Chair Selected

    Jim Provenza, Yolo County supervisor, was selected as the chair of the Conservancy Board on Wednesday, July 23, 2014. Supervisor Provenza has been a board member since its inception in June 2010 and replaces two-term  Chair Ken Vogel, San Joaquin County Supervisor. Dan Taylor, an Assembly appointee, was selected as the vice-chair to replace Mike Eaton, a Gubernatorial appointee. 

    The Conservancy has a 23-member board, consisting of 11 voting members, 2 non-voting state legislative members, and 10 non-voting liaison advisors. Five of the 11 voting members represent the Delta counties--and the chair must be selected from those five. The remaining voting members are the Secretary for the California Natural Resources Agency, the Director of the Department of Finance, two public members appointed by the Governor, and one public member each appointed by the President Pro Tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the Assembly.

    The Conservancy was established in 2010 to act as a primary State agency to implement ecosystem restoration in the Delta and to support efforts that advance environmental protection and the economic well being of Delta residents.
