Board of Trustees

LIPA is governed by a local Board of Trustees who supervise, regulate, and set policy for LIPA. The Board consists of nine Trustees, five of whom are appointed by the Governor, two by the Temporary President of the State Senate, and two by the Speaker of the State Assembly. The Trustees serve for staggered four-year terms. All Trustees reside on Long Island or in the Rockaways and have relevant utility, corporate board, or financial experience. Trustees are not compensated for their service.
