About Us

Our Board

The Board of Directors is the BVEDC's governing body consisting of leaders from both the public and private sectors. Most terms are for three years, with a limit of two terms consecutively.

Our Category I Funding Partners -- Brazos County, the Cities of College Station and Bryan, and Texas A&M University -- each receive three seats on the Board. Each entity selects its representatives. The county judge and the two mayors automatically serve.

Invest Brazos Valley's membership on the Board is determined by its combined committed annual funding of the BVEDC. Currently, IBV is allotted three Board members.

The Bryan/College Station Chamber of Commerce has one seat on the Board.

Ex-officio members of the Board are the city managers of both cities, the superintendents of the Bryan and College Station Independent School Districts, and the executive director of the Brazos Valley Council of Governments.

The Board's Executive Committee consists of the four Board officers, Brazos County's county judge, the mayors of College Station and Bryan, and a Texas A&M University Board representative.
