Anyone who agrees with the goals and approach of Ancoura can become a member of Ancoura and vote at the Annual General Meeting. There is no membership fee.

Ancoura is managed by a Board of Directors that generally meets on a monthly basis. A president, vice-president, treasurer and secretary are members of the board. Directors are elected for a period of two years at the annual general meeting of the members. The officers of the corporation also hold office for two years (again, the terms are renewable).
