PBS Board of Directors
PBS is governed by a 27-member Board of Directors that manages the property, affairs and business of the Corporation. The Board meets for regularly scheduled meetings four times a year, and its committees meet as necessary. Meetings of the Board and its committees are open to the public, though some portions of those meetings may be held in closed session.
The Directors are responsible for governing and setting policy for PBS. In total, the Board comprises 27 members: 14 Professional Directors (station managers); 12 General Directors (outside directors); and the PBS President. PBS Board members serve three-year terms, without pay.
