Two major bodies work together to implement
CCST's mission and programming: the Board, and
the eponymous Council.
As a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation,
CCST is governed by a Board of Directors. The Board provides strategic vision and direction and has
fiduciary responsibility for CCST. Distinguished leaders
from academia and industry - including those representing
our Sustaining Institutions and Federal Laboratory
Affiliates - form the 16 members of the Board.
The current Chair of the CCST Board of Directors is Charles F. Kennel.
"For the past 30 years, CCST has proudly served as the
conveners and translators of scientific and technological
knowledge for California's leadership. We
are grateful for this responsibility to advise our great state
- and we stand ready to serve in the decades to come."
- Charles F. Kennel
