The Fishers Island Community Board (ICB) was formed in 2005, following in the footsteps of years of work by the Fishers Island Civic Association. 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.
Willard Soper, President; MaryBeth Guimaraes, Administrator/Secretary; Year-round representatives: Meg Atkin, Nate Malinowski, and Candace Whitman; Seasonal representatives: Dicky Riegel, Willard Soper, and George de Menil; Christian Arsenault, FI School District; Geb Cook, FI Ferry District; David Burnham, Waste Management District; Paul Giles, Fire District; Susie Parsons, Island Health Project (IHP); Matt Edwards, Walsh Park; Mimi Gary, FIDCO; Tom Siebens, FI Utility Co.; Elizabeth McCance, Ferguson Museum; Tom Sargent, FI Conservancy; Jeanie Cook, Community Center (FICC); Margaret Benkard, Island Peoples Project (IPP); TBD, Fishers Liaison to Southold; Louisa Evans, Town Rep – Ex Officio.
In order to provide an effective civic forum, the ICB Directors are asking members of the Fishers Island Community to join our Community Member Registration drive. It is critical to the effectiveness of the ICB Directors that elections happen annually. This will ensure that everyone has an opportunity to vote and we can achieve a fair and balanced voice going forward. We have provided a seamless and free sign-up vehicle for both registering and counting everyone’s vote. If you have not yet registered as a member of the ICB community, please do so here:
YOU ONLY NEED TO REGISTER ONCE AS AN ICB MEMBER,
YOU NEED NOT DO IT ANNUALLY.
ICB Annual Appeal
Please consider making a voluntary annual contribution of $10 for individuals or $25 for families to assist in covering ICB’s annual operations costs. Additional contributions of any amount are most welcome! ($35 is suggested for businesses.) Because ICB is a 501(c)(4) civic association, dues and contributions are not tax-deductible. You may send checks to ICB at PO Box 464, Fishers Island, NY 06390 and we have provided an online payment option here.
