The Carlsbad Village Association (CVA) is looking forward to a new year fulfilling its mission to lead the continual improvement of Carlsbad Village by promoting and enhancing its business, cultural, and community vitality, making it the premier destination in North County San Diego. CVA is proud to have a dedicated Board of Directors made up of fellow business owners and Village residents leading the way.

CVA's all-volunteer board dedicates their time and energy guiding the efforts of CVA with a focus on Economic Vitality, Design, Promotion, and Organization, the four tenets of the Main Street America program of which CVA is an affiliate. Today the Main Street America program is a network of more than 1,600 neighborhoods and communities, rural and urban, who share both a commitment to place and to building stronger communities.

Each individual brings a special talent and level of expertise to CVA as well as energy and enthusiasm for all things that benefit Carlsbad Village. The Carlsbad Village Association wouldn't be where it is today without the dedication of its board members, all whom take a personal stake in the success of the association and the downtown businesses.
