Who we are
CVILLE100 is a coalition of non-profit organizations with a climate mission that work across the state. For-profit companies in the energy efficiency, renewable energy, and other allied fields are eligible to fully participate in Cville100’s programs as non-voting, affiliate members. In 2018, our first year, 14 non-profits joined the coalition, and more will be welcome to affiliate. We are incorporated as a 501-c3 and are led by an Executive Committee that is elected by our member organizations.
Our coalition was launched to strengthen the climate movement in the Charlottesville-Albemarle County region. Environmental groups in the region realized the need to get out of information silos and to communicate and support each other's efforts in climate action. We offer communication, news, and a venue for member groups to enlist the cooperation of other members to support their actions and programs. Monthly membership meetings include discussion of the city, county and UVA's climate action efforts, as well as member group reports on their program. All of the announcements are posted in a Google doc that is circulated to our Google group. Importantly, Cville100 does not itself take any advocacy positions. Instead we actively facilitate members to enlist other willing members for advocacy.
Meetings: General meetings of our members are held on the third Tuesday of the month, from 6 to 8 pm on Zoom. Announcements with directions to join the meeting are sent to the mailing list. If you would like to be included on the announcements and mailing list please contact Diane Szaflarski (firstname.lastname@example.org). We welcome community members to join our meetings to learn about all of the actions of our member organizations.
