An interim stakeholder committee with diverse geographic, cultural, demographic, and food policy council-based perspectives led the selection process for the first slate of IAC members.
The committee used relationship-based networking and nominations solicited from 300+ stakeholders to identify prospects. They then selected people with the skills needed to govern the initial phase of this fund. They centered diversity throughout the process.
IAC members serve for a minimum of 1 year, with rotating term limits for stability. Term limits for current members and future selection processes are not yet set. This ongoing governance structure is in development by the IAC.
