For a little background…. The Board of Directors governs CPB, sets policy, and establishes programming priorities. The President of the United States appoints each member, who, after confirmation by the Senate, serves a six year term. The Board, in turn, appoints the president and chief executive officer, who then names the other corporate officers.
