The society is administered by an executive board of elected officers and volunteers who serve two-year terms.

The society's principal objectives are to:

  • Promote an interest in genealogy
  • Encourage and instruct members in genealogical research
  • Locate, preserve, and index public and private genealogical records
  • Support genealogical facilities open to the public
 

The society supports the Pikes Peak Library District’s Special Collections by sponsoring the following programs:

  • Volunteers extract data from newspapers and other key local resources to provide valuable genealogical indexes and databases in Special Collections and on the library’s website.
  • The Book Committee selects and purchases books for the Special Collections.
  • In cooperation with Special Collections, the Education Committee increases the public’s knowledge of genealogy by presenting programs to individuals and groups in the local community.
  • GenMentors offer free genealogical consultations upon request. It's recommended that genealogists get the basics of genealogy by attending the series of free workshops offered three times per year.
