Management Board

We are guided by the commitment and care of a diversity of leaders.

Our management board is comprised of Bay Area leaders who support our mission and can advocate for and/or represent our interests throughout the nine county Bay Area. As a self-directed partnership, the management board is responsible for overall policy and direction, while day-to-day operations are lead by the SFBJV Coordinator. The primary responsibility of the Board is to set, revise, and accomplish the goals established in our Implementation Plan.
