Board of Directors

For residents, by residents: our governing body is made up of local residents who steer the mission, vision, values and policies of Coastal Villages

A Critical Link Between Community Members and CVRF

Behind our successful organization is a Board that understands its responsibilities and actively supports the missions and goals of Coastal Villages Region Fund. CVRF’s Board of Directors is responsible for governing CVRF’s affairs. The Board makes broad policy decisions and sets organizational goals that the staff carry out. The primary functions of the Board are to act in the best interests of the company and the Coastal Villages region. These functions enable us to achieve our purpose of providing the means for development by creating sensible, tangible, long-term solutions for residents of our 20 member communities.

Meet Our Board Members

CVRF would like to acknowledge our sitting Board members for their valuable guidance and oversight. Each Board member's contributions in navigating Coastal Villages toward the future we envision for current and future generations is greatly appreciated by many. Quyana cakneq!

Community Elections

CVRF’s Board of Directors is made up of democratically elected representatives from each of our 20 member communities. Board members serve six-year terms, and elections take place every two years. All Board members must be permanently domiciled residents of the communities they are representing, meaning that the Board member must have permanent residence and plan to remain a resident. Elections are run under a standardized democratic process designed to give fair voice to all residents of each community.

 

Architects of the Dream

CVRF would like to remember community leaders who have served on the company’s Board of Directors and are no longer with us. These individuals helped shape CVRF with their leadership, action and wisdom. CVRF is grateful for their many contributions while serving on the Board. Quyana cakneq.
