The group is run by a Management Board, Chairperson and Secretariat.
A Management Board of no more than nine member organisations, elected by its members, directs VSG. A minimum of five are needed at management meetings to enable decisions to be made on behalf of VSG as a whole. Member organisations are elected to the management board for a three year term but can stand for re-election each time. Three positions on the management board will be elected in December each year.
The role of Secretariat is currently a position held by the team from Outdoor Recreation NI.
