How our members are organized

Get involved in our democratic process

One of the benefits of Foresters membership is the opportunity to get involved in our democratic process, through participating in elections or nominating yourself or someone else for a leadership role. Every year, you can cast a ballot to choose the representatives for Branch Council, who in turn elect the Branch President and Vice President. These elected leaders provide a guiding hand, which helps to focus and support the impact that Foresters makes in member communities.

Our Constitution defines our purpose

Foresters Constitution provides the framework of the laws and principles by which we operate and sets out the authority, responsibilities, and obligations of Foresters members, officers, and representative bodies. The Constitution is a legal document reviewed by representative members every four years at the International Assembly.

Every member of Foresters is entitled to a copy of our Constitution. You can read and print a printer-friendly version of the entire Constitution here
