ICB is composed of six elected members (three seasonal and three year-round residents), and a representative from each of the four tax districts, Island organizations, and non-profits. ICB serves in a coordinating role, keeping the island stakeholders apprised of what is happening in the community and hosts island-wide strategic discussions.

  • Year-round Representatives: Meg Atkin, Linda Mrowka, and Staley Sednaoui
  • Seasonal Representatives: George de Menil, John McGillian and Richard Miller

In order to provide an effective civic forum, the ICB Board Members are asking members of the Fishers Island Community to join our Community Member Registration. It is critical to the effectiveness of the ICB Board that elections happen annually, or as an elected term ends. This will ensure that everyone has an opportunity to vote and we can continue to have a fair and balanced voice.
