Our team consists of three key groups who work together to complete our mission for Americans to find common ground and take action to create a more responsive government.
The People's Executive Board
The Executive Board has control of, and is responsible for, the management of the affairs and property of the Corporation. The Board is composed of key outside directors who are experienced in strategy, finance, operations, and development. They have typical rights and fiduciary responsibility of a legal Board of Directors and include our officers: President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Learn more about our Executive Board members.

The People’s House of Delegates works in conjunction with the Executive Board and staff to be an advocate of The People’s work.
