Members elect a President, Secretary, Treasurer, and twenty-four trustees, who collectively select the editors of the Review and the Executive Officer. The President serves a two-year term and one-year as President-elect and Immediate Past-President. The Secretary and Treasurer each serve two year terms and Editors (general editor and book review editor) serve three year terms.
