MAIN Governance

Every successful organization is built on a strong foundation called governance. The MAIN Board of Directors ultimately ensures that the MAIN membership acts in accordance with the organizational bylaws and policies. What follows are the core documents that describe MAIN’s governance as well as supplemental documentation.
