The Board of Directors consists of twelve full-time members, each of whom is elected to a three-year term by the Tribal Councils of his/her respective community. One representative from the Tribal Council of each of the eleven communities in the Northwest Arctic Borough, and a representative from the village of Point Hope, form the Maniilaq Association governing body.

The Board of Directors is subdivided to form seven committees that focus on different aspects of Maniilaq Association's operations. Individual board members also represent Maniilaq to groups concerned with various Native health, tribal, and social issues.

For further information about the Board of Directors, contact Paula J. Octuck
