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.

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!

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

I am an out of state member/owner and I would really like to see current board minutes with as much detail as possible. I believe if I look hard enough I may find the agendas on the website but am not sure of that. If this is a time issue (not having enough time to get the minutes typed up and posted to the website) I do understand but for those of us that want to keep track of what is going on administratively it causes us a problem. Anyway, let me know.

Hey thanks you guys for putting together all this information. I am hoping other interested Co-op owners are taking a look at all of this because it is a gold-mine of all sorts of specifics concerning what they own. It seems like it may have been a lot of work posting it so whomever was involved in doing so thanks to you. I have barely touched the surface and am looking forward to my second go-around. Thanks again!!!
