Masters Swimming Australia Inc. is an incorporated Association (no. A0042945L) incorporated in the State of Victoria in 2002. The Association is governed by a Constitution and By-Laws with a National Board of Management.

According to the constitution, the National Board of Management (NBM) comprises the President and four other elected members.  There are two General Meetings involving the Branches, one of which is the Annual General Meeting held in autumn usually in conjunction with the annual National Championships.  The other meeting is held in spring.  There are three permanent national committees.  They are Coaching, Swim Meet and Technical.

The NBM is responsible for the governance and overall direction of the organisation, with the day-to-day running of the organisation being the responsibility of the staff in the National Office.  A General Manager (reporting directly to the NBM) manages the administration staff and the office.  The National Office also services the Victorian Branch by performing its administrative duties.
