Members are the grassroots of the association and our most important people. Members form the branches and from the branches come the thoughts and actions that drive the association.

Each branch has office bearers elected annually consisting of:

  • President
  • One or two Vice Presidents
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary
  • International Officer

Committees and craft officers can be nominated as required. Branches meet monthly for eleven months of the year.
