Each Board has a similar structure with a chair, vice chair and secretary-treasurer who are elected by the Board to staggered three-year terms. The Boards meet quarterly during the fiscal year; special meetings can be called as needed.

The ANTHC Board of Directors

Authority

While ANTHC is a non-profit organization, it is structured so its 12 member regional corporations are the primary governing bodies. Each regional corporation is governed by a board of directors that is composed of shareholders/members elected in proportion to the number of Regional Corporation shareholders/members residing in each region. The Boards meet quarterly during the fiscal year; special meetings can be called as needed. The President of each Regional Corporation serves on ANTHC's Board and may appoint an alternate representative from his or her region. In addition to the President and alternate, other voting members include (1) one representative from each medical school who has been appointed by that school's dean; (2) two representatives designated by the Alaska State Medical Association; and (3) a representative from the Department of Health and Social Services. Other members, including non-voting representatives from federal agencies or programs, may attend Board meetings with permission from the Chair.

Board committee structure The day-to-day business of ANTHC is directed by its Executive Director, who is appointed by the Board President and confirmed by the full Board of Directors. The Executive Director reports directly to the ANTHC Board of Directors.

The Board also has a number of committees that make recommendations to the Board or report on specific activities, such as grant proposals. Each committee consists of board members and/or staff with expertise in a particular area. Committees meet monthly when in session, or more frequently if necessary for special projects.

There are six standing committees:

(1) Audit & Fiscal Review Committee; (2) Community Health Committee; (3) Education & Research Committee; (4) In-State Clinical Care Committee;

(5) In- Service Delivery Committee; and (6) Nominations, Elections & Governance Committee. In addition to the standing committees, ANTHC Board of Directors also has an Executive Committee. The Executive Committee consists of the President, Vice President and Treasurer serving as ex-officio members; two regional corporation designees who serve a 2-year term; and three other voting representatives from throughout Alaska appointed for a 3-year term by a majority vote of the Board at its annual organizational meeting each spring.
