The Dallas Fort Worth International Airport Board elected new officers during its February 2020 meeting. Dallas representative Matrice Ellis-Kirk will serve as chair.

The election comes at the end of term for Fort Worth representative William Meadows, who has served as chair since 2018.

The board also elected Fort Worth representative Henry Borbolla to serve as vice chair, and newly sworn-in member from Dallas Gloria Tarpley to serve as the secretary of the board. The terms for the new leadership are one year and begin immediately after the election. It is customary for leadership members to serve two terms.

DFW Airport’s Board is comprised of 12 members, seven appointed by the City of Dallas and four appointed by the City of Fort Worth. The mayors of each city are automatically appointed to a seat on the board. The 12th seat is a non-voting seat and rotates between DFW’s four host cities — Euless, Irving, Grapevine and Coppell.

The 2020 Board of Directors:
Matrice Ellis-Kirk, chair.
Henry Borbolla III, vice chair.
Gloria M. Tarpley, secretary.
Mayor Eric Johnson, Dallas.
Mayor Betsy Price, Fort Worth.
Vernon Evans, Fort Worth.
Benjamin Leal, Dallas.
Raj Narayanan, Dallas.
William Meadows, Fort Worth.
Mario Quintanilla, Dallas.
