Our Board

The makeup of the MMDC’s Board of Commissioners is rooted in the Regional Development Act Provisions and is governed by Minnesota State Statutes.

All regional development commissions (RDCs) are to ensure the majority of commissioners are locally elected officials. This includes one county commissioner, a city representative, and a township representative from each county in the region. In addition, two commissioners representing school boards are required. Cities with a population greater than 10,000 are also entitled a representing member.

State Statutes also permit additional “special interest” members under the MMDC’s Board discretion. These commissioners lend important perspective on important regional issues (e.g. workforce issues, aging issues).
