Local private lodges, whether constituted as associations or not, are the members of the Grand Liberal Lodge Association.
The national bodies are the Board of Directors (that is the “Executive Council”), the Assembly of the Representatives of the lodges, the Board of Arbitrators and the Board of Auditors.
The Executive Council is chaired by the Grand Master and is the administrative body of the association. The Assembly of the Representatives of the lodges, also called the “Grand Assembly”, consists of the Worshipful Masters and the Wardens of each associated lodge.

The Board of Statutory Auditors keeps control over the financial administration of the association.
