Board of Directors

A Bit About the Board:

The Isla Vista Food Co-op is currently governed by a 6-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.


From your Community-Owner Elected Co-op Board of Directors:


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 its 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!
