As with any business or agency, it is extremely important to be in touch with those you serve. One way the MMIA demonstrates this commitment to its membership is through the MMIA Board of Directors.
The 15-member Board governs the MMIA and is comprised of elected and appointed officials from member entities. The seven largest entities- Billings, Bozeman, Butte-Silver Bow County, Great Falls, Helena, Missoula and Kalispell- have permanent seats on the Board. Another seven seats are occupied by individuals representing smaller communities, (with populations less than 20,000), who are elected for rotating two year terms.
The 14 Board Members appoint the individual who will occupy the last seat. No member agency may have more than one representative on the Board. The Board governs each coverage program on an independent basis.
