Heather Goetsch

CUB Board Member since 2021

What skills and experience do you bring to the board?

I bring the experience and learning of working within nonprofits over the past 10 years. I have led volunteers and staff at local, state, regional, and U.S. national levels. I have managed and directed work plans and budgets that range from $100,000 – over $1.5 million. I have implemented and directed hundreds of events, the most recent the spring and fall equity summits at USGBC. I have written and advised on strategy for membership and revenue growth, as well as staffing structure and operations. I have served on volunteer committees within the American Planning Association and am a commissioner on my village’s Architectural Review board. I bring a high level of integrity and energy to the mission of CUB and work of the board.


Why do you want to be on the CUB board of directors and what do you hope to accomplish?

I want to serve on the CUB board of directors because consumer protection is critical around utility service, and CUB is at the intersection of equity and environmental protection for utility service. CUB improves the quality of life for the residents of Wisconsin, along with the other CUBs across the country. I want to bring my experience to help improve and increase CUB’s capacity for outreach and engagement over the next three years to raise the organization’s profile and resident’s recognition as a collaborator, advocate, and educator. CUB should be a “household name” for the residents and businesses it serves.
