About Our Board
ICDC is one of the most compelling board assignments on Isle au Haut! Created by islanders for the long-term sustainability of the community, voting membership is extended to each year-round resident: property holders who do not live on the island year-round have one vote per property. The governing board of directors is elected by members at ICDC’s annual meeting. This volunteer board is a mix of seasonal and year-round residents, which assures that the board represents a wide range of expertise, experience, and perspectives. Many a community member has served on the ICDC board.
