MSWD is governed by a five-member Board of Directors. Directors are elected concurrent with the general elections every even-numbered year. Director’s terms are four-years. The election of directors alternates between three seats and two seats, respectively, every two years.

All Directors are appointed to serve on two of five Board committees (finance, engineering, public affairs, human relations and executive committee). Members also serve as liaisons to other governmental, community, regional and national boards, associations and organizations.

Feel free to email questions you have about Board meetings or Board issues to board@mswd.org.
The Board of Directors meets on the third Monday of each month and the Thursday prior to that Monday for study session. Meetings begin at 3 p.m.

Workshops are scheduled for the first Tuesday of the month at 9:00 a.m. as needed.

Meetings and Study Sessions are held at the District Administration Building, 66575 Second Street, Desert Hot Springs. For easier access, please use the First Street entrance and parking lot.
