In addition, members of JAROC work together to improve the working environment for all judges.

The directors of JAROC are elected by member judges, forming the board for a term of two years. The president of JAROC is elected among the directors. The current president is Mr. Fong-Wei Shen who is currently serving as a bench judge at the Supreme Court. The directors and committee members operate on a voluntary basis, in addition to their judicial role.
