The business and affairs of Inland Power & Light are managed under the direction of a board of trustees. Generally, this board determines policy and direction that allow management to carry out the day to day business and operations. Inland's board is comprised of nine trustees, seven of which represent a specific geographical district and two that represent the cooperative at large.
The Board of Trustees meet once a month, but additional attendance at meetings or conferences may also be needed to deal with special issues. Trustees spend an average of 25 days a year serving the cooperative.
