TAFP is governed by a system of committees, commissions, sections, and task forces made up of TAFP members. These groups report to the Board of Directors who ultimately decide the direction of the Academy. These policy-making groups meet twice a year at Interim Session in March and Annual Session in July. Committees, commissions, sections, and task forces range in size from five to over 30 members. The Board of Directors comprises TAFP officers, delegates to AAFP, and one or more representative from each TAFP local chapter plus alternates.
