Our bylaws require an Annual Meeting of the corporate membership, (comprised of board members, nominating committee members, and council delegates) and is conducted in April every year.

Service units select delegates and alternate delegates—members 14 years of age and older—who serve in an advisory capacity to the Board of Directors.
