Cabrillo board seeks candidates

Group provides housing services

The Cabrillo Economic Development Corporation is accepting applications for its board of directors.

Cabrillo is seeking candidates who believe in and will actively support the core values and vision of providing comprehensive housing services that lead to self-sufficiency for individuals and families who are most lacking in opportunity in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.

“In 2017, Cabrillo completed its strategic plan and identified its key priorities for 2017-19. One of the five priorities is to build strong, engaged board leadership,” said Dave Sabedra, Cabrillo board president. “This will include the board expanding its membership to 13 and recruiting members with different backgrounds and specific skill sets that will compliment those of the existing board members.”

Cabrillo is seeking to ensure the board is diverse and representative of the communities it serves and that candidates have a wide range of experience and knowledge.

The board will review applications on a rolling basis. Self-nominations and third-party nominations will be accepted for officers and board members, including low-income representatives.

Cabrillo requests a three-year commitment of service from board candidates.
