The Miami Rowing Club is governed by an elected Board of Directors, who serve either 2 year or 1 year terms. The Board oversees all rowing programs of the organization, and 1/4 of the Board is comprised of representatives from the Youth Program Committee, a committee elected by the parents of Youth Program rowers.

The Miami Rowing Club annual elections were held in December 2014.
