The number, qualifications, and term of office of members of the board are as provided in the bylaws. A vacancy on the board shall be filled by a majority vote of the remaining members of the board."[2] The Executive Board is also required to hold annual meetings and to submit annual reports to the US Congress.

Bylaws provide that membership will include:[3]

  • Up to 64 regular members, elected annually at annual National Council meetings.
