The Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport Board establishes the policies by which the airport operates, and does not involve itself in the day-to-day operation of the airport. That function is vested in Executive Director, Tony Bean and his administrative staff. The board is not representative of only one entity. Members from both cities of Pullman, Wash. and Moscow, Idaho, both universities–Washington State University and University of Idaho, and both counties- Whitman County, Wash. and Latah, County, Idaho, as well as a member from the Port of Whitman County and a member at-large serve on the board. The eight members are appointed by both the City of Pullman Mayor and the City of Moscow Mayor. The Pullman Mayor will always be the Chair of the Board and Moscow Mayor will always be the Vice Chair of the Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport Board. The board meets on the last Wednesday of every month at 3 p.m. in the Airport Fire Station/ARFF Building Training Room, unless otherwise posted.
