    Application to Serve as Director of the Virginia Food System Council

    The Virginia Food System Council is launching an application process to identify a diverse group of leaders to serve on its Board of Directors. 

    Because of your past participation, expertise, actions, and commitment, you have been identified as having excellent potential for this role, and we are encouraging you to apply. 

    We are looking for Directors who are committed and passionate and able to:
    • attend (in person or via web conferencing) about four meetings per year;
    • actively participate in our priority areas;
    • participate in strategic planning and decision-making; and
    • maintain a consistent line of communication.
    Here is what we’re about: Active since 2007, the Council envisions a sustainable, equitable, nutrient-rich, and safe food system that contributes to the health, economic vitality and social well-being of all Virginians. Our work prioritizes access to healthy local food, successful linkages between food producers and consumers, a resilient and viable future for Virginia’s farmers and farmland, and growing a strong collaborative network of local and regional food system groups across the state. That’s a lot! 

    We need Directors who are system influencers and engaged thought leaders like you to actively participate, provide critical thinking, and guide the impact and expansion of the Council.  Directors ensure that the Council serves this vision and that it develops an action-oriented strategic plan with a funding strategy for its implementation.

    We know that you are a Virginian who cares deeply about our food system and the need for an overarching connection of all sectors and all areas of the state.  Please consider applying for this opportunity to serve all Virginians.
