Our Governing Board

MDS Community Action Agency & Human Resources Authority has an 18-member Governing Board (plus one alternate) represented by residents of all Menominee, Delta and Schoolcraft counties. Our bylaws dictate we have at least one-third representatives from the low-income consumers we serve, one-third public officials or their representatives and one-third from the private sector.
