The FCAB consists of seven members. Five of the seven members are appointed by the Board of Supervisors for five-year terms. At least three members shall be residents of cities within the District and at least one of the three shall be a resident of the largest city in the District (Phoenix). In addition to the five members appointed by the Board of Supervisors, the Salt River Project and the city of Phoenix appoint representatives who are ex-officio members of the FCAB with all rights and privileges granted to other members.
