The Governing board membership comprises the highest ranking leaders of all federal agencies in the Bay Area. Members represent civilian, military, postal, law enforcement agencies, and quasi-federal agencies regardless of size. We are fortunate to have two active-duty personnel currently on our board; a Captain with the U.S. Coast Guard and a Commander in the U.S. Public Health Service.

SFFEB Leadership Model:

  • Governing Council Officers: Chair, 1st Vice Chair, 2nd Vice Chair, Treasurer, and Immediate Past Chair
  • Governing Council – SFFEB Officers & SFFEB Council Chairs
    • Governing Council Officers & Council Chairs are elected by Board members
  • Governing Board Members
    • Made up of the highest-ranking Federal Agency leaders within a Chain of Command located within the SFFEB region
      • Represents & supports the greater Federal community: civilian, military, postal, and quasi-fed agencies
      • The amount & type of participation is not dependent on agency size
    • Agency Leadership – Agency/Office Directors in the SFFEB region and their designated Leadership Team(s)
      • Membership automatically confers as a collateral duty for Federal leaders
    • Council Members – Check out our Councils Page or Contact Us for more information on which councils are appropriate for you to join!
    • Federal Employees, Quasi-Feds, Contractors, and others within the wider Federal Community

Everyone has the capacity to lead from where they are!

Governing Council Officers & Council Chairs serve a minimum of one year and nominations are confirmed by annual vote of the full SFFEB membership at our Strategic Planning Meeting. As a general rule, the Chair is succeeded by the 1st Vice-Chair followed eventually by the 2nd Vice-Chair. The Chair acts as the senior spokesman for the SFFEB and supervises the activities of the Governing Council. Generally, the Governing Council meets on a monthly basis, and once meeting minutes are approved by the Chair, they are distributed to the full SFFEB membership.
