The Public Philosophy Network is a membership organization; individual memberships are currently free, although we gladly accept donations. Institutional Memberships, conference and other service fees, individual donations, and grants provide our funding.
The PPN is governed by an Advisory Board and an Executive Committee and is led by two co-directors. The co-directors are jointly responsible for the administration of the organization; additionally, each is primarily responsible for one of the two major functions of the PPN--PPN conferences and the PPN website.

The PPN Advisory Board consists of representatives selected by each institutional members in addition to some individuals who are appointed by the Executive Committee in consultation with the Advisory Board. Members serve three year terms; the Board elects co-chairs who then also serve on the Executive Committee.
The PPN Executive Committee consists of the co-chairs of the Advisory Board, the two elected co-directors, and three elected at-large members (although one of the at-large members must be an independent scholar or community-based practitioner).
