The Isla Vista Food Co-op is currently run by a 5-seat Board of Directors elected by our owners (YOU!) annually in February. Each Board Member is elected for a 2 year term, and there is currently no limit on how many terms a director can run for.
The primary responsibility of the Co-op's Board is to be legally accountable for the actions of the Isla Vista Food Co-op, to provide overall direction and ensure the long-term security and viability of the Co-op, and to make decisions in the best interests of the Co-op and it's entire membership.
The Board is responsible for developing policies necessary to carry out the duties of the Board and the functions of the Co-op.
Co-op Owners can choose to be involved in the governance of the Co-op in several ways. Aside from voting in our annual election, Co-op owners may also attend Board of Directors meetings, sit on Board committees or run for the Board!
Meet Our Board!
I represent the healthcare sector of our community and have the ability to educate more healthcare professionals about the co-op and more patients, students, and community members. I enjoy connecting community players in the food world, networking, and collaboration.
