President – Fred Shipman
Vice-president – Gary Danielson
Secretary – Joyce Tompkins
Treasurer – Fred Shipman
Director of acquisitions – Helga Mueller
Director at large – Carolyn Danielson

The Society houses the largest part of its collection in the upper rooms at the Town Library and maintains a room in the Old Church Building for special exhibits.

In recent years, these exhibits have featured Lake Tarleton, the Piermont Village Schools and Piermont Farms.
