The main committee is elected at the annual general meeting which is held during the world championship. Officers and members are elected for two years but at the end of their two year period are eligible for re-election.

Some Comments from New Zealand concerning the 2003 SGM in Warnemünde:
The rule passed at last year's OK Dinghy European Championships has enabled the class to get on with the process of building some new masts with confidence that they will actually be used and evaluated in competition. The weight was agreed upon mostly from the opinion of one mast manufacturer; this mast maker obviously favored his particular construction method. We now know and have proven that there are cheaper alternative processes by which rigs can be produced. Now that some carbon OK masts have been produced from several manufacturers, we know that 8 kilograms is too heavy and actually increases the cost, rather than containing as we all originally thought. We should rectify that problem immediately.
To follow the example set by the Finn class would be a mistake. Finns are a lot heavier and take a lot more power to drive them. This requires a heavier mast. The dynamic loads on an OK rig are far less than that of a Finn; the structure is far more efficient from an engineering point of view because it is further from being a wing. Therefore there is less need for it to weigh as much as 8 kg for strength purposes. Old Finn masts can still be used with only a minor weight disadvantage, similar to the extra weight of a needlespar over the current minimum.
