The Chairman runs the meetings, and with the advice and consent of the Board of Trustees names all committees.
The Trustees and Officers manage the committee in accordance with the Parade Committee Constitution and By - Laws.
The Executive Committee at the reorganization meeting elects the Officers and Trustees annually in May.
The Parade Coordinator is separate from the officers and trustees.
