Board of Directors

The Isla Vista Food Co-op is currently run by a 7-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.

Dear IV Food Co-op Owners:

In these unprecedented times, we feel that it is more important than ever to commit to local, healthy food and the cooperative process. To that end, the Board of Directors has voted to continue the 2020 IVFC Board of Directors Election  with several changes to protect the well-being of our workers, owners and customers. 
  • The 2020 Election will take place entirely online
  • The voting timeframe has been expanded, now from March 23 through April 30
As always, all Owners have a vote! Meet the candidates and exercise your democratic owner control online. 

Thank you for being part of our community.

In cooperation,
The IVFC Board of Directors Election Committee 

The primary responsibility of the Co-op's Board is to to provide overall strategic direction and ensure the long-term security and viability of the Co-op.   The Board is voted for by the Co-op's ownership and represents the collective voice of the active owner body.

The Board develops the policies that govern the work of the Directors as well holds fiduciary responsibility for the long-term health of the Co-op.  The Board hires the General Manager, who oversees all operations of the Co-op.  

The Board is not involved in daily Co-op operations, but instead uses it's policies to ensure that the General Manager is operating in conjunction with the larger goals set by the Board.

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!

 Any questions or communications can be sent directly to our board president Lisa at!
