Sector Planning Tables

Join Our Sector Planning Tables

Join one of our Sector Planning Tables and share your concerns, ideas, and ambitions with Redwood Region RISE's platform (850 members and counting!), the State of California, and the broader public. As a member of our Sector Planning Table you will collaborate with other organizations and experts to identify projects and initiatives that can be scaled to a regional level and compete for (state) funding.

Through this opportunity, you can strengthen relationships with local and regional partners, gain access to trainings (e.g., centering equity in economic development) and many more resources, and increase our Regio's competitiveness to receive future funding. Your input will help create a sustainable economic vision for our Region.

Who Makes Up Our Sector Planning Tables?

Redwood Region RISE's four Sector Planning Tables are:

• Arts, Culture, and Tourism
• Health & Caregiving
• Renewable & Resilient Energy (Wind, Solar, Microgrids)
• Working Lands & Blue Economy

What Do The Sector Planning Tables Do?

The four Sector Planning Tables are primarily responsible for surfacing strategies, identifying constraints and problem-solving solutions, and promoting projects for implementation. They also play a role in forging partnerships and identifying leveraging opportunities for their sector. Each group includes members representing the government, workforce development, and labor/trades to help guide those aspects of strategy development. 

Sector Planning Tables will put forward projects and strategies to be evaluated and voted on by the Voting Member Block (more information below) to be put forward for implementation. As this will be a more intensive time commitment, signed Partnership Agreement Letters are required, and stipends will be available ($100/meeting for those who meet the requirements).
