Each year, one of the political parties nominates a candidate to join the Board of Directors as treasurer. The other two political parties then choose to accept or reject the candidate. Assuming the candidate is accepted, he or she will serve a five-year term on the board, culminating with the position of president. The opportunity to choose a candidate rotates between the parties, thus ensuring each party has equal representation on the Board of Directors.

CDS members do not have to join a political party in order to be active within the society. While several committees and board officers are chosen by political party, members unaffiliated with a political party may be chosen for volunteer leadership positions if they are nominated by a political party.
To find out more about political parties and governance of the society, logged-in members may review the society's constitution and bylaws.
