The Southern Pacific Historical & Technical Society is recognized as a non-profit educational organization under IRS section 501(c) (3). Members of the Society elect its Board of Directors, which in turn elects the Officers. Except for the President, there is no requirement for an Officer to be a member of the Board of Directors. This enables the Board to find the most qualified person available to serve as an officer of the Society. The Board sets out the general policies of the Society, and the Officers are charged with carrying out these policies.
