Board of Directors

In November 2008, voters in North Dakota returned control of WSI back to the Governor, who now appoints the agency’s Executive Director, while leaving the Board as quasi-advisory.

The 11-member Board of Directors is appointed by the Governor with members serving four-year terms. Six members represent employers that maintain active accounts with WSI, three members represent employees, one member is a member of the North Dakota Medical Association and one is appointed as an at-large member.
