The PCHA is governed by a Board of Commissioners made up of seven Port Chester citizens. Five are appointed by the Mayor to serve five-year terms. Two tenant elected resident commissioners serve two-year terms. The Chairperson and other board officers are elected annually by current board members.
The commissioners meet monthly, usually the last Wednesday of each month, in the PCHA offices. Meetings begin at 3:30 P.M. and are open to the public. Notices of all meetings are posted in the office lobby. The Commissioners develop policies that are enforced and carried out by the Executive Director and staff.
