Ventura County


Executive Committee

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

Andy Dosev – Chair and Volunteer Coordinator

Joy Downing Riley – Vice Chair and Respect the Rincon Parkway Lead

Zach Williams – Secretary

Deby Tygell – Treasurer

Danielle Rose – Beach Cleanups Coordinator

Andrew Fish – EC Member at Large

Lars Davenport – EC Member At Large

Joan Tharp, City of Port Hueneme Hold On To Your Butts/Rise Against Plastics Lead

John Stith – Newsletter

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.
