A nine member Board of Directors governs the Chamber. The general membership elects members to the Board annually to serve for terms of one calendar year for officers, and staggered two calendar year terms for directors. Elections are held every November for new Directors of the Saipan Chamber of Commerce. Member votes are apportioned according to their annual membership dues contribution. Members of the Chamber who have served on the Board of Directors for at least one year are eligible to run for the position of President. Potential board members are invited to accept nominations, and are qualified by participation in Chamber activities and committees.
