All activities are coordinated by the SLTFOA Secretary General based at the SLTFOA Secretariat in Colombo.

The General Committee meets monthly in Colombo for discussions, while branches hold their own meetings at regional level. Each districts cast votes to appoint their representatives to the General Committee at the Annual General Meeting.
