The Children of the American Colonists is a kindred organization to the Daughters of the American Colonists and the Sons of the American Colonists. The National Organization consists of the Adult Advisory Council and the members. The Adult Advisory Council is elected for a period of two years. Members hold office for one year. The Adult Advisory Council Officers and the corresponding member Officers work together to promote the work of their respective offices. The National Society holds its General Assembly annually in June to receive reports, conduct business, and hold elections. State Societies provide the link between National and the members throughout the country.
