The Northcentral Technical College District Board of Trustees has nine members representing the NTC District. They are appointed during an early spring meeting by the district county board chairpersons and approved by the Wisconsin Technical College System Board.

The Board composition includes: two employers, two employees, three members-at-large, one elected official, and one school district administrator. Eight members represent geographic regions of the district based upon analysis of the populations of the regions. In addition, a minimum of three members of either sex and one minority member must be appointed.

The Board sets policy and has final authority over budgets, including establishing the property tax levy. The most important function of the Board is the selection, evaluation and retention of the college president. The president is responsible for internal administrative operations.
