Board of Directors

MGEX is a membership organization. Members come from differing backgrounds and fulfill many roles – from representatives of multi-national companies, to brokers filling orders for customers, to speculators who work only for themselves.

A member-elected board of directors governs the Exchange. Members elect seven directors to serve on the board. These newly elected board directors appoint public directors to join them in the decision making process. Together these 11 directors lead the board of MGEX.
