The 1988 AHO Directory listed 48 members; the 2005 AHO Directory lists 231 full and affiliate members, representing a new type of organization, Holocaust   museums, education, documentation and commemoration centers that have come into being from the late 1970s onward in the United States and increasingly throughout the world. The AHO is governed by a nine-member board of directors, which is elected by and from the membership at its annual business meeting. The term of office is two years. The AHO is run on a volunteer basis. Membership dues cover the expenses of the organization. (William Shulman (2nd ed.)
