The NFEDP is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of elected officials and economic development professionals from each of the 14 counties, municipal government representatives, regional workforce development board representatives, private sector partners, and regional education consortiums (representing K-12, private colleges, and universities).
Board of Director terms are two years and the Board officers include a Chairman, Vice Chairman, Secretary, and Treasurer; officer terms are also for two-year terms. The Board is governed by the tenants of the NFEDP By-Laws.
The NFEDP Nominating Committee develops recommendations every two years for an Executive Committee. The Executive Board has the authority to take official action on behalf of the full Board of Directors if necessary; their actions must be reported at the next full Board of Directors meeting which convenes quarterly.
The Executive Committee has 11 members with a minimum of 2 representatives being elected County Commissioners, one member representing Regional Workforce Boards, and an at-large position at the discretion of the current NFEDP Chairman. The remaining representatives are local economic development professionals that serve on the Board of Directors and the Past Chairman.
