A question came up on the BJCP Forums about duties of the Board and it was answered here:

Still accepting nominations, if you're in one of the regions up for election and want to make a difference, here's your chance. Next chance comes in 3 years  ;)

Mountain/Northwest

That seat is not up for re-election this year (it is in 2013) which is why that part of the map is mysteriously missing.

Let's have some AHA members and BJCP Judges step up to the plate and vote. If you are reading this and are in one of the two contested regions, please cast your vote before May 15.
