As a membership organization Local First Milwaukee has a board of directors made up of volunteers from our member businesses. The board’s work is to guide the organization’s decisions in the areas of membership, communication, finance, and marketing. Elections are held annually to fill board seats and each member of the association has one vote to elect their representatives.
