    Organizational structure: GPF is governed by a board of directors pursuant to its by-laws. Each national Chapter is governed by its own independent board of directors. The board of the international organization is advised by a Global Leadership Council (GLC) representing diverse constituencies and continental geographic regions where GPF is registered. GLC members and chapter leadership give further voice in periodic meetings enlisting inputs from 18 GPF national chapters from the world of civil society, business responsibility, interfaith, academia, women and other sectors. Please see the GPF Annual Report for more details: http://www.globalpeace.org/global-peace-foundation-2014-annual-report
