Forsyth County operates under the commission-county manager form of government.

The Board of Commissioners is made up of five members, each living in a specific district and elected by district to serve four-year terms. Each year in January, the five members elect officers for the coming year.

The commission meets in regular session twice a month, on the first and third Thursdays. The meetings convene at 5 p.m. and are held in the Commissioners' Meeting Room (Suite 220) on the second floor of the County Administration Building, 110 East Main Street, Cumming. Public hearings coincide with the meeting on the first Thursday.

The commission holds a work session twice a month, on the second and fourth Tuesdays. The work sessions convene at 2 p.m. and are held in the Commissioners' Conference Room (Suite 210), also on the second floor of the County Administration Building.
