SSR is managed by a Board of Directors consisting of the Executive Council, six Directors, and two Trainee Representatives elected by a ballot of the Regular Members of the Society. The SSR Bylaws detail each position's responsibilities and term of office. The Board of Directors meets twice each year: once at the Annual Meeting and once midwinter.
Committees give SSR members an opportunity to become involved with decisions that directly impact SSR and its direction. SSR currently has 11 standing committees and four ad hoc committees.
These documents include a historical record of SSR Officers and Board and Committee membership, U.S. government-mandated documentation, and guidance documents developed by the Society for internal use.
