Explanation: The use of the word conformation in this context sounds decidedly odd to me in English. Most of the instances (though not all) I see of it on the web are translations from Spanish.
The more familiar expression would be "make-up"
"With the current make up of the Board this could be very interesting or should I say troubling. The Board Chair ‘could’ appoint the Superintendent to gather applications and make a recommendation as to what candidates get to the Board for the interview process."
Explanation: I don't believe you sould use tribunal or court in this sense

Explanation: my suggestion, even though I would prefer more context for the "tribunal"
Explanation: The appropriate translation here will depend on context.
(1) If "conformación" refers to the act or process of putting together the tribunal, then probably "constitution" or "formation" would be a good bet. If it means how the tribunal is made up (incl. who is on it), then "composition" is appropriate.
(2) I wonder what sort of body this "tribunal" is. Normally it implies a judicial function; so "board" or "panel" would correspond (you would talk about a panel of judges if it is some sort of competition or examination rather than a judicial process). But it seems odd to have a "tribunal" in a congress. The body normally involved there is called an "organising committee", or just a "committee".
