Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is composed of 11 elected library directors who oversee MAIN’s operations and supervise the MAIN Executive Director. They meet on the second Thursday of each month (except August) at different locations. It was formally known as the MAIN Planning Council.

Multiple times per year, the Board of Directors meeting is preceded by a Membership meeting, which is open to all MAIN staff. In addition to Old/New business items, representatives from each committee give reports at these Membership meetings, outlining what has been accomplished since the last Membership meeting.
