President Steve Shapiro lives in South Whidbey, where he practiced medicine and opened the Island Athletic Club. Board Member Helen Price Johnson lives in Clinton, and represents the entire community as an Island County Commissioner. Executive Director Nancy Conard recently retired from being the Mayor of Coupeville, and has also worked as Business Manager of the Coupeville School District. Secretary/Treasurer Robin Hertlein also lives in Coupeville, and runs her own consulting business for nonprofit organizations. Representing Oak Harbor is Mayor Bob Severns, one of the founding Board Members for the community foundation. Board Member George Saul lives on Penn Cove and volunteers for a number of governmental and nonprofit organizations, using his experience in executive leadership at semiconductor companies.

As Whidbey Community Foundation grows in the future, we will strive to continue to have balanced representation on the Board of Directors.
