The Global Action on Disability (GLAD) Network may have two or three Co-chairs at a time: one standing and one or two rotating. The Standing co-chair is the International Disability Alliance (IDA) and the current second co-chair is the United States Government (U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)) .

The term for rotating co-chairs is 3 years: in their first year, they are mentored by the outgoing co-chair, while in their last, they become outgoing co-chair, and mentors the incoming one.
