The organization is led by a 47-member National Board of Direction, which includes five National Officers (President, President-Elect, Past President, and two Vice Presidents), and a national office staff led by an Executive Director. In addition to their strategic duties as national officers, three positions maintain oversight of three key components of the organization: the President-Elect oversees the Academy of Fellows and its Chair while one Vice President oversees the Committee & Councils and their Chairs while the other Vice President oversees the Regional Vice Presidents. The SAME Board of Direction is comprised of the National Officers, 17 Regional Vice Presidents, 13 Committees & Councils, and 12 Elected Directors.
