KENCO is managed by a board of 9 directors drawn from member organizations. The board is responsible for key decision making and carrying the vision of the organization forward including sustainability. Within the board are various committees that handle various issues at the board level e.g., procurement, human resource, advocacy, resource mobilization etc. These committees meet often depending on the tasks at hand. The National Executive Committee of the board comprising the Board Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer meet often to deliberate and make decisions on important issues that do not require the participation of the full board. The following are the board members and the member organizations that they are affiliated with:
