Since 1964, GSWGA has been governed by a group of dedicated volunteer Board of Directors, which consists of a maximum of 15 Directors including the Chairman of the Board. Directors are elected for a (3) year term and may be reelected for (1) consecutive term. After completing a second term they must retire from the Board for at least (1) year before being nominated for the Board again. All officers on the Executive Committee are elected for a (1) year period. However, they may succeed themselves for a second term provided it is approved by the Board of Directors.
The only exception to these terms of office is the retiring President who automatically becomes the Chairman of the Board regardless of tenure on the Board.
