The organization itself is made up of an executive board of elected officials who oversee the basic workings of the group and the run the monthly meetings. Other members serve on committees such as Recruitment, Historical, Authenticity, and Civilian affairs. In the field, officers and NCO's are promoted through a structured system involving testing and accumulation of points for events attended. This is done to ensure that those in charge during battles and living histories are experienced and competent enough to lead troops in both a safe and authentic manner.
