The board holds an annual meeting beginning at 9:00 a.m. on the last Friday of October or as otherwise determined by the board.

The newly elected officers assume the duties of their offices on January 1 following the annual board meeting. Officers serve a term of one year and can be reelected for one additional term.

Either the chair or a quorum of the board has the authority to call meetings of the board. The chair presides at all meetings. In the event of the chair's absence or inability to act, the vice-chair presides. The board determines other duties of the officers.

The board's meetings are open public meetings conducted pursuant to chapter 42.30 RCW. WAC 4-25-521 provides information on how to contact the board's office for meeting times and locations or additional information regarding the board's activities.
