Board membership is by way of a selection and appointment process. A term of office is three years.

The Minister of Māori Development invites Mana Whenua to form a selection body. This body meets several times to select the nine board members.

Seven members represent Mana Whenua and two members represent Mataawaka.

The board meets monthly and is supported by a small, dedicated secretariat. Meetings are open to the public except where confidential items are being considered.
