The organizational intent of the Society is to assure active involvement and participation of all local chapters. The only way that the fraternity can attain its objectives, aims, and goals is through the cumulative action of local chapters.

The National Advisory Council
The National Advisory Council advises the Executive Board and the Grand Chapter regarding matters of interest to the Society, suggests and recommends issues that should be considered, and suggests activities and legislation for the advancement of the Society and the cause of workforce development.
Members of the National Advisory Council are all Past Presidents of the Grand Chapter and two members elected from each chapter.
The Executive Secretary-Treasurer
The Executive Secretary-Treasurer carries out the directives of the Grand Chapter and the Executive Board, maintains all national records, and collects, maintains, and disburses funds as directed.
The nomination and election of national officers is rotated among the active local chapters. This unique method of rotating leadership insures that each local chapter will be afforded an opportunity to provide direction and leadership for the fraternity. This feature, coupled with the delegate membership of the Grand Chapter and the National Advisory Council, provides ample opportunity for relevant input from all members and local chapters of Iota Lambda Sigma.
