Board of Veterans Affairs

The Department of Veterans Affairs receives advice from a nine-member, part-time, citizen Board of Veterans Affairs. There must be at least one member of the Board who is a resident of each of Wisconsin’s eight congressional districts. Board members are appointed by the Governor for four-year terms with the advice and consent of the Wisconsin State Senate. Board members' four-year terms are staggered, helping to ensure continuity, and expire on May 1st in odd-numbered years. Each Board member is required by law to take and file an official oath prior to assuming office.

The Board is required to meet annually and may meet at other times. At its first meeting of each year, the Board elects a chairperson, vice chairperson, and secretary of officers. Officers can be reelected for successive terms.

Board members receive no compensation for their services, though they are able to receive reimbursement of actual and necessary expenses required in the performance of their duties.
