The Surfrider Foundation Ventura County Chapter has a seven-member executive committee that is responsible for managing the chapter’s activities and finances. They are:

Sadie Iverson, Chair

John Gonzales, Vice-Chair

Eric Lunquist, Secretary

Greg Moore, Volunteer Coordinator

Deby Tygell, Treasurer

Laura Oergel and Megan Oergel, Members At-Large and Ocean Friendly Gardens Coordinators


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 positions 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.
