The Port of Chelan County Commissioners set policy and approve all expenditures of the Port. Commissioners serve six-year terms that are staggered so one seat is up for election every two years. While all Commissioners are elected on a countywide basis, each must live in a specific Commission district within Chelan County. The Commissioners determine who will hold the offices of president, vice president and secretary. Commissioners are responsible for appointing the Executive Director and Port Attorney.
