Since its inception in October 2005, the CMAP Board's membership (click for a list or view a map of Board members) has reflected the regional consensus that led to the agency's creation. It features balanced representation from across the counties of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, and Will. The Board is chaired by Gerald Bennett, mayor of Palos Hills. On April 12, 2006, CMAP hired Randall S. Blankenhorn as its first executive director to oversee agency operations.
