The Board is responsible for overall mission empowerment and policy oversight, with professional staff providing mission guidance and operational support, and a Program Council composed of Program Committee Chairs coordinates the activities of associated Program Committees chartered for mission-component implementation. Support Committees serving operational needs of the organization are chartered as needed, and all committees are free to organize subordinate teams and subcommittees in support of their activities.
