ParlAmericas is an institution run by parliamentarians, for parliamentarians. It is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of executive members and sub-regional representatives designated by national parliaments from North, Central, and South America, and the Caribbean.
The Board has ex-officio representation from the ParlAmericas International Secretariat, the immediate Past President, the parliament hosting the next Plenary Assembly, the Corporation Board for the organization, as well as a representative from the General Secretariat of the Organization of American States.
ParlAmericas has three permanent working groups, known as Networks, that are dedicated to parliamentary action on the themes of gender equality, open parliament, and climate change. The Networks are governed by an Executive Committee whose Presidents each hold a position of Second Vice-President on the ParlAmericas Board of Directors.
