The process of selecting new Board Members begins with a public posting of the position.  Applicants then turn their resume into the Development Authority for initial review by the current Board.  All Applicants receive an in-person interview for the position with current Board Members.  The Development Authority Board then selects the best candidate and submits the name for approval.   
Prospective Board Members are first approved by current Board Members and then City and County Commissioners.

If the Commissioners do not approve the applicants, they can suggest a candidate or allow the Development Authority to submit another applicant. The entire process is open to discussion with all three governing bodies throughout the process.
