The SLLF is governed by a board of up to 45 House Speakers, Senate Presidents, Majority Leaders, Minority Leaders, and Pro Tempores.

Directors are elected to three year terms and are eligible for reelection. Legislative leaders may be nominated for membership on the board by a current director or on the recommendation of the President.

The Board meets regularly to review all ongoing SLLF programs and policies, approve the annual operating budget, oversee all fiscal audits, and discuss future SLLF initiatives.
