Much of the work of the National Society is accomplished by a committee structure. State Chairmen are appointed by the State Presidents and Chapter Chairmen are appointed by the Chapter Presidents.

State Chairmen take the National committee objectives and execute them by promoting, educating, and encouraging members and chapters to participate. Chapter Chairmen, report their activities and accomplishments to the State Chairmen, who in turn, report to the Chairmen National. This committee structure enables the Chairmen National to gather accurate information so that they can report to the National Society, on all committee activities, nation wide.
