Under them, management is divided into World Services (WS), Creations, and Family Care Foundation (FCF) (see Fronts). The following is a sample of The Family International's current and former leadership or high-profile members (note: Many of them have legally changed their names and have adopted either "Brown" or "Smith" as their surnames):

Regional Offices

The Family International divides regional management into zones that have changed very rarely and typically in very small ways over its history. They are:

  • ASCRO (Asian Central Reporting Office): Southeast Asia and Indian Subcontinent; administered in Bangkok, Thailand
    • Richard Douthit (American; aka "Stephen" / "Silas")
    • Sandra Gail Douthit (aka "Joan" or "Endureth")
    • Cephas (Thai)
    • Dawn (formerly "Lamb")
    • Anne (SGA)
    • Adam
    • Ariane (SGA)
    • Emmy (SGA)
    • Mark (SGA)
  • EURCRO (European Central Reporting Office): Europe, Africa, most of Russia; administered in the town of Flüelen, Switzerland (located near Altdorf, which is near Zürich and Zug) by:
  • NACRO (North American Central Reporting Office): United States, Canada, Mexico, Carribean and some countries of Central America; administered in Dallas, TX by:
  • PACRO (Pacific Area Central Reporting Office): Japan, China, Korea, Australia, Far East Russia and other countries of the Pacific; administered in Tokyo, Japan and Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Also known as FENRO (Far East National Reporting Office) when it was located in Hong Kong prior to the 1990s
  • SACRO (South American Central Reporting Office): South America; administered in Santiago, Chile

Each region is managed by a team of Continental Officers (COs), each team typically having five to seven members. The management structures beneath the CO team are more variable and their members are changed frequently.
