Wayne, and his wife, Ellen, are members of Sacramento Friends Meeting. Prior to 2017 they lived in Vermont and attended So. Starksboro Friends Meeting for 18 years. Wayne Michaud is executive director of Green Driving America Inc., a California-based non-profit organization that advocates for green driving: educating on the benefits of green driving practices and promotion of low- to zero-emission vehicles. The organization was founded in Vermont in 2006 as Idle-Free VT. The organization will be implementing two school community projects for the 2021-22 school year: • Green Driving from the Start, a New England and Oregon project which will work with driver educators in several states to present guest-lecturing sessions to show student drivers the benefits of green driving. • Schools Are Not Drive-Thrus!, a Northern California project which will work with participating middle and elementary schools to implement idle-free schools campaigns to address the issue of prolonged idling during the dismissal period on school grounds. Wayne and Ellen have one child, Matthew, living in Los Angeles. Wayne has also been a commercial and fine artist with a degree in Illustration from the University of the Arts, Philadelphia.
