Friends of the Arkansas State Archives is headed by a Board of Directors of 17-21 members who are elected by the membership for two years at a general membership meeting in November. Directors’ terms are staggered so all terms do not expire at the same time.
The Board members elect their President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer in January. The board is bound by bylaws that determine procedures and elections.
The Friends’ organization has 501 (c) 3 status and has a Memorandum of Understanding with the State Archives that governs their relationship.
