Racine Kenosha Community Action Agency, Inc. is governed by a tripartite Board, comprised of delegates from Racine and Kenosha Counties. These volunteers represent various sectors of the community (public officials, civic group representatives, low-income representatives), and set policy and provide oversight for the organization. A meeting of the Board of Directors is held on the fourth Thursday of each of the following months, unless the Board of Directors designate a different date: January, March, April, September, October, and November. The Annual Meeting occurs on the fourth Thursday of September.
Public officials are appointed to the Board by the County Executives of Racine and Kenosha Counties. Low-income representatives are elected to serve through a democratic process undertaken by those they represent. Finally, civic group representation is determined by groups and interests of the community. Once the groups and interests to be represented have been selected by the Community Action Board, respective representatives are chosen by the groups and interests themselves. Members of the Board of Directors serve three-year terms and may serve no more than two consecutive terms. Terms begin at the Annual Meeting in September and continue through the Annual Meeting in September, three years later. Board members must reside in the county they represent.
