This twelve-member board includes six citizens chosen by the governor on a bipartisan basis, three ex officio members from state agencies, the director of the Department of Natural Resources, the chair of the advisory council, and a representative of the Indiana Academy of Science. (See IC 14-10). The Commission meets at least four times annually.

The Commission currently has one standing committee: the AOPA Committee, chaired by Jane Ann Stautz.
