Organization leadership is made up of four executive officers, eight district directors, two trustees, one registrar, one newsletter (the Offspring) editor, one website coordinator, one child survivor coordinator, one storekeeper, and 24 state chairs.



Elections for executive officers are held biennially in the same years national conventions are held. Any member in good standing can submit their name for candidacy to the National President. A special ballot edition of the newsletter Offspring is sent to all dues paying members. Ballots are counted and winners announced at the general membership meeting held at the national convention. District Directors and other officers are appointed by the National President at the first meeting of the newly elected executive board. Our current officers are listed below.
