The Trust is overseen by a seven-member Board of Trustees. Under Alaska Statute, Trustees are appointed by the governor and must be confirmed by the Legislature. The appointments are for five-year staggered terms. When a Trustee's term expires the individual continues to serve until re-appointed and reconfirmed by the Legislature or until a new Trustee is appointed and confirmed. The Board of Trustees meet at least four times each fiscal year. Each Trustee serves on one or more board committee.
The Trust bylaws call for a public comment period during all regular meetings of the full Board of Trustees to allow individuals to inform and advise the Board about issues, problems or concerns. See our Public Comment Guidelines for details and how to participate.
