Governance

The Great Falls Development Authority (GFDA) is governed by a Board of Directors that reflects our regional public-private partnership. The board is comprised of appointed partners, public and private sectors, who are reviewed/reappointed each year, and the remaining are elected by our private sector investors to serve three year terms on the board.

Our Board meets monthly, usually on the first Thursday of the month from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.  Board meetings are held in Heritage Hall at Great Falls College MSU.  Please check our calendar for current meeting schedules, as we do adjust the date sometimes to avoid conflicts with our out of state marketing efforts.

Each year our Board appoints an Executive Committee that meets monthly, usually on the third Wednesday of the month from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Executive Committee meetings are held at the GFDA office in the Portage Building at West Bank Landing. Please check our calendar for current meeting schedules.  The Executive Committee is responsible for financial oversight and operations, and is empowered to act on behalf of the Board when necessary.
