Meet The Carlsbad Village Association Board Of Directors

Blog Post - September 18, 2023

Category: What's New

The Carlsbad Village Association (CVA) Board of Directors is an all-volunteer board made up of property owners, business owners, and residents in Carlsbad Village. These dedicated volunteers provide valuable oversight in guiding the organization, and are actively involved in planning and implementing projects designed to support the downtown businesses and Carlsbad Village as a whole. CVA is proud to have 11 devoted and diligent Board of Directors 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 2,000 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.
