The Board of Trustees is the governing board of the American Homesteading Foundation. The board meets at least once a month in open forum to conduct the business of the organization. Non-board members are allowed to speak on any agenda item. Meeting agendas and minutes are available in the AHF office.
The Board of Trustees consists of nine members each elected to a three year term. Three of the nine positions are filled by an annual election of the members by secret mail-in ballot. The nominating committee puts forth five persons for consideration plus write-in candidates are allowed.
