As prescribed by the Act, the Board of Governors reports directly to City Council, wherein the composition of the Board is 13 members (Mayor’s Designate, 4 Council Members, 4 Public Appointments, 3 appointments nominated by the CNEA, and the CNEA President).

At its meeting of March 5, 2012, City Council approved a report entitled “Separation of the CNEA from the Board of Governors”, wherein one of the recommendations was related to the composition of the Board to remove the four CNEA representatives on the Board in order to transition the CNEA to independent governance.
