Consumer Reports Board: Consumer Reports is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors that meets for two days, three times a year and also conducts regular committee meetings. Through an annual election in which Consumer Reports’ paid members are eligible to vote, new Directors are added to the Board when necessary and incumbents are re-elected to the Board when eligible. Potential Board members come from a variety of sources, and some nominate themselves. Some of our most talented Board members have been self-nominated.
