All Guild members may run for a seat on the Board of Directors. A majority of the Board must consist of Cheesemakers. The Board comprises 13 seats, each lasting for a two-year term. Candidates for the board must be invited to run by a current board member, and then voted in by the membership. Board members also serve as committee chairs.
