According to the ARCOA constitution, the country is divided into districts, each with one or more Directors chosen by the members of that district who are present at the annual convention.

With the national officers, the Board of Directors exercises supervision of the affairs of the association. They meet at least two times each year in various parts of the country: immediately following the close of the convention, in the fall, and often in the spring. All members are welcome.

The fall meeting is in Washington, DC, so that those who attend can be present at a memorial service in the garden at Red Cross Headquarters. At this simple, impressive service a wreath is placed at a statue honoring Red Cross workers who have given their lives in the service of humanity. The funds for the statue by the famous sculptor, Felix de Weldon, were raised by American Red Cross Overseas Association and Red Cross.

District Directors encourage members to attend and participate at our annual national conventions held in late Spring or early Summer. They report at the convention and share experiences networking with their jurisdictions.

Within their districts the Directors are responsible for promoting the activities of the Association. They are interested in the recruitment of new members, as well as in the continued interest and active participation of present ones. They welcome suggestions for nominees for the International Humanity Service Award and items of interest for The Oversea'r.

They report to the chair of Service To Our Own any case brought to their attention of a member who may require assistance . This includes anyone, who because of illness, hospitalization, or a death in the family, would appreciate a card or note, as well as anyone who because of a financial emergency might be given a grant from our fund for that purpose.
