Decision-making within ETJ is generally decentralized. The leaders of each ETJ project are encouraged to run projects independently and to be responsive to the members of their groups.
Project leaders are also members of the ETJ-Coordinators group which, although it is often inactive and generally acts in an advisory capacity, is the ultimate decison-making body for all aspects of ETJ except the areas for which Language Teaching Professionals has responsibility (see below). The ETJ-Coordinators group has the authority to make general ETJ policies within the areas for which it has responsibility, approve new ETJ projects, and get involved in the internal affairs of each ETJ project, especially when asked to do so by the project leader or members of the project, or when it considers that a special situation has arisen.
Language Teaching Professionals is responsible for sponsoring ETJ and deciding on arrangements with other sponsors/businesses, for the general administration of ETJ, for mailings and nationwide marketing, and for protecting and keeping membership data. All other aspects of ETJ are under the authority of the ETJ Coordinators group.
The systems by which an ETJ member becomes a member of the ETJ-Coordinators group are decided on by the Coordinators group. This includes the allocation of the number of representatives for each project.
