The DUP is administered by a National Board whose headquarters are located in the Pioneer Memorial Museum located at 300 North Main in Salt Lake City. Beside the National Board the Daughters are further broken down into companies who have a presiding board which oversees the activities of camps (ten members or more) in a geographic area. In 1990 the DUP consisted of 155 companies overseeing the activities of 1,012 camps in 17 states and Canada with a total living membership of 23,000. Totally the organization has had 63,000 members in its ninety-year history. Membership in the organization is open to any woman who is "over the age of eighteen years, of good character, and a lineal or legally adopted descendant of an ancestor who came to Utah before the completion of the railroad, May 10, 1869."
