Who can serve on our board and what are the duties?

We have three different options for those interested in serving on a Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan board:

Director

A director is responsible for the well-being of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and its members. A director’s duties are to develop corporate policy, assure the company's financial stability and oversee how management executes policy and compliance with the law.

In addition, board members are assigned to various committees that each meet six to eight times a year.

  • If you are appointed, you’ll need to continue to be a Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan member during your entire tenure on the board.
