The Board of Directors of the Oklahoma VFW Foundation consist of nine members. Of these, five are directly elected by the Department of Oklahoma Veterans of Foreign Wars Membership. The elected positions of Department Commander, Senior-Vice Commander, Junior-Vice Commander and Quartermaster serve on the Foundation's board during their term of office. In odd-numbered years, the membership will elect a Foundation board member to serve a 2-year term.
Those five elected Board members will then choose the other four members of the Board. These Board members, when chosen, will serve a 4-year term with only one term coming up for renewal each year. These selected Board members are not required to be members of the Veteran's of Foreign Wars.
The Foundation Board is lead by a President, who is elected by the Board at their first meeting of a Fiscal Year who will serve a 1-Year Term. The Board also elects a Vice-President. The Secretary-Treasurer of the Foundation is the Board member who is the current Department of Oklahoma VFW Quartermaster.
The day-to-day operations of the Oklahoma VFW Foundation is managed by an Executive Director, and assisted by an Assistant Executive Director. These two positions are appointed by, directed by and answer to the Board. These two positions are not Board member positions (however, members of the Board may hold either of these positions).
