The Surfrider Foundation Ventura County Chapter has an executive committee that is responsible for managing the chapter’s activities and finances. They are:
Laura Oergel, Chair
Sadie Iverson, Vice-Chair
Shannon Shoup, Secretary
Ryan Power, Beach Cleanups Coordinator
Juli Marciel, Rise Above Plastics Coordinator
Kevin Gaston, Member At-Large and Surfers’ Point Specialist
Lars Davenport, Member At-Large
Elections are held every year, usually at the December chapter meeting. All Surfrider Foundation members present for the election may vote. EC members are elected to terms of two years; terms are divided between the seven members so that approximately half (i.e. 3 or 4) of EC seats are (re-)elected every year. Positions are divided among the EC after the election. Nominations begin one month before the election. Any active member of the Ventura County Chapter whose Surfrider Foundation dues are paid may serve on the EC.
