NSCAC is incorporated and operates as an organization separately from any other patriotic organization, but it cooperates with organizations whose purposes and objects are similar.  It is dependent upon the NSDAC and NSSAC members to furnish it with leadership and advice in Adult Advisory Council offices. Each member office, (CAC officer or chairman), has a corresponding Adult Advisor to assist with their office. The assistance provides the members with information regarding their office, annual report preparation, parliamentary procedures, and proper protocol.

The NSCAC Friendship Luncheon is held in the Washington, DC area in April during the NSDAC National Convention. NSCAC extends invitations to Life Promoters, NSDAC and NSSAC National Officers and members to the annual luncheon held at the NSDAC conference hotel.  One of the bi-annual Adult Advisory meetings follows the luncheon.
