The Board of Trustees consists of 23 members. Twenty-two members are appointed by the county supervisors and one member is appointed by the Board of Trustees. Representation from the four supporting counties is as follows: Harrison County (eight members), Jackson County (eight members), George County (three members), and Stone County (three members). The member appointed by the Board of Trustees alternates between Harrison and Jackson counties.
