Board of Directors and Board of Advisors

The FCSS-FESC governance structure is divided into two separate but equally important bodies; the Board of Directors which is appointed annually to serve one-year terms and the Board of Advisors which is filled on an as-needed basis on the advice of the Executive Director.


Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is comprised of ten (10) Directors who serve one-year terms and is the highest and final authority within the organization. The Board is responsible for all financial, legal, regulatory, and governance affairs of the FCSS-FESC.
