The Board of Directors oversees all aspects of the region. Made up of 12 individuals, the Board has fiduciary and legal responsibility for the well-being of the organization and supervises the Executive Director.
The Board is made up of 7 member-elected representatives and 5 board-elected representatives (also known as At-Large members). Member-elected positions serve a two-year term, and board-elected positions serve one-year terms. Members may serve four consecutive years before leaving the Board for at least one year.
The Board has four officers - President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer - that make up the Executive Committee. Officers are chosen by their fellow Board members and serve for one year.
The Board meets approximately every 6-8 weeks, generally on Mondays, and meetings usually last about 2 hours. While there are responsibilities outside of regular meetings, members should expect to spend, minimally, 1-2 hours per week on region-related duties (depending on committee and project responsibilities)
