Officers and Staff
Like any large corporation, AMVETS is suitably structured to carry out a wide range of activities integral to its operation as a veterans service organization. On a day-to-day basis, these various functions are carried out by the national staff. Leadership at this level is vested in your national officers, who also serve on the National Executive Committee. Similarly organized on the national level are the Ladies Auxiliary and the Sons of AMVETS. Other key entities are the National Finance Committee and the Board of Trustees of the National Service Foundation.
