After more than six years with the Snake River Alliance, Executive Director Liz Woodruff will leave the organization on July 3. She is leaving to pursue new opportunities in the nonprofit sector in Idaho. The Alliance is seeking a new director who will continue to build the strength and effectiveness of the organization.
Woodruff started at the Alliance in 2008 and became director in January 2011. Since then the organization has pushed back against efforts to weaken Idaho’s settlement agreement that protects the state from more nuclear waste. The Alliance leads the effort to get Idaho utilities to end their reliance on coal-fired power imported from out-of-state and replace it with clean, affordable, and sustainable alternatives.
The Snake River Alliance works for responsible solutions to nuclear waste and a nuclear- free future. It seeks to strengthen Idaho’s economy and communities through the implementation of renewable energy sources in Idaho and the promotion of energy efficiency and conservation.
