Lakeshore Technical College is governed by a nine-member District Board of Trustees appointed by the County Board Chairs of those counties making up the Lakeshore district–Calumet, Manitowoc, Ozaukee, and Sheboygan. Pursuant to Wisconsin Statute, the Board consists of two employer members, two employee members, three additional members, one elected official member who holds a state or local office, and one school district administrator. Board members serve staggered three-year terms and meet once a month.
The LTC Board formally adopted Policy Governance in 1994. Governance is expressing the college's values and perspectives in their largest form, especially as they pertain to vision, prudence, and ethics; assuring executive performance; representing the college's overs (general public/community); and being the bridge or connector between the owners and operations.
