The WHEEL Committee is open to all VC CoLAB members interested in participating in robust discussions of local policy issues.  “WHEEL” is an acronym for Water, Housing, Energy, Environment and Land Use and the committee regularly discusses these issues as they relate to our members and local businesses. The WHEEL Committee provides our membership with an opportunity to collaborate on and learn about timely, relevant topics from leaders in their respective fields, as well as provide valuable input to our Board of Directors.

The WHEEL Committee meets on the third Wednesday of every month from 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM (dark in December)
at Jensen Design & Survey, 1672 Donlon St. Ventura, CA 93004.
