The affairs of the organization are governed by an elected Board of Directors. According to its Bylaws, the BRVA Board may have no fewer than nine members and no more than fifteen members. Currently, all fifteen positions are filled. The Board elects the officers, who are referred to collectively as the Executive Committee. The officers include President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Legal counsel and accounting services are retained by the Board of Directors, as needed.
The initiatives, projects, and events of the Association are carried out by various standing and ad hoc committees, which report their activities to the Board of Directors for information and action.
An Executive Director, hired by the Board of Directors of the Broad Ripple Village Association, serves as a liaison between the membership, the Board, the committees, the community, other neighborhood organizations, and the City of Indianapolis.
