The Board of Commissioners is a non-partisan, three-person elected body that oversees all Port of Bremerton operations by providing policy direction and decisions in public meetings.

Over the last 100 years, Port of Bremerton constituents have selected port commissioners with a strong commitment to making decisions in the vested interest of the people they represent. The port district is divided into three commission districts, each with an elected official that is elected to a six-year term. The Board is represented on various organizations and committees related to Port activities.
