Association officers are elected at each reunion.  The Association has used several different titles for its leadership.  From its origin in 1980 until 2002 the members elected a Captain.  From 2002 until 2015 the members elected a President.  In 2015, in order to get more persons involved in the planning and administration of the Association the members voted to elect a committee who would select its chairperson.
