Campus in the fall
Board of Directors


The 16 members of the Perpich Board of Directors are appointed by the governor of Minnesota and represent the eight Congressional districts of the state as well as other natural constituencies of the center. Members serve terms of four years and may serve up to two consecutive terms.

The Board’s responsibilities include oversight of the center’s administrative activities and budget as well as ensuring ongoing excellence and fulfillment of the center’s duties and responsibilities.

The Perpich Center Board of Directors generally meets monthly on the fourth Thursday of the month (please see the Perpich calendar) with rare variations due to conflicts or holidays. One meeting each year may be scheduled to occur outside the Twin Cities metropolitan area. Meetings are at the Perpich Center campus in Golden Valley, unless otherwise noted. Meetings begin at 5:00 p.m., subject to change for special circumstances. Additional meetings may be convened by the Board as needs require. Check back regularly for updates on the Board’s meeting schedule and minutes.

For questions concerning schedules, minutes, meeting recordings, etc., you may address queries to the Board Administrator or to individual Board members (emails are listed in the directory).
