It is made up of department heads and various members of the party in good standing. It makes all official party decisions and recommendations and it is bound to the USWP Constitution.
After Scrabman became party president, in early January due to Rocco Baldelli resigning, he added the status of Emeritus Executive Board member after a suggestion and proposal from GoBucks.

Positions and Departments of the USWP
The Party president, or PP, is directly elected by the general membership on the 15th of every month and serves as the figurehead and chief executive of the USWP. The USWP President heads the Executive Board and handles any new appointments to the Board.
The PP designates the party's presidential endorsement every month, which is usually decided by the EB as a whole. His or her duties also include the finalizing of all USWP congressional candidates the day before elections.
The PP also has access to all USWP funds and orgs.
Chief of Staff
The Chief of Staff, or CoS, is in many ways the USWP's version of a Vice President; acting as the party's second in command. The CoS coordinates activities of the EB, and acts as the PP's assistant. Should the PP, for whatever reason, be forced to leave office before his or her term is up, the CoS shall act as Party President until a new election can be organized.
The CoS is expected to maintain the constitution of the USWP, and assure that all party decisions adhere to it.
Internal elections are organized by the CoS.
Political Action Committee
The Political Action Committee, or PAC, is one of the most effective and important department within the party.
The PAC serves as the starting point for all elections the party is involved in, but specializes in the monthly Congressional Election. All potential congressional candidates are expected to sign up with the PAC. To avoid conflicts between two proposed candidates, the PAC mediates and moves candidates to different states.
The goal is to get quality USWP candidates in as many states as possible, and to provide them with the information and support they need to win, as well as weeding out fake candidates, such as multis and foreign invaders.
A list of PAC approved candidates for each state is published by the director and submitted to the EB every month, after which the PP then endorses each candidate on eRepublik.
Month after month, the PAC completes this process and provides effective congressional candidates. This department is an asset the USWP is proud to have.
The Communications Department of the USWP, often shortened to the Com Department, is the department that handles all USWP affiliated media and public relations.
The Communications Department manages the party's official newspaper, the USWPost, as well as having programs aimed at increasing goodwill and contact with other parties, both nationally and globally. The USWP Wiki page falls under the jurisdiction of the Com Department, and is to be updated accordingly.
The Director is expected to keep party members informed of party news, and to issue press releases occasionally regarding party business.

The whip is to relay all proposal information and advise to USWP Congress members and party leadership. The whip is also expected to occasionally brief the party on congressional happenings.
The Legal Department is in charge of any legal matters related to the USWP. It often helps members draft contracts which are needed for various reasons in-game.

Its director was to coordinate the actions of its programs, one of which was a gifting partner program.
