The I.T.S.A.A.D.C.O.T.F.O.I.K., from Carl Barks' "The Chickadee Challenge" (1955).
The adult leadership of the Junior Woodchucks consists of Troop leaders (or Grand Moguls in European comics) whom often has elaborate, grand and long acronymized titles which demonstrates their ranking position and professional field. They have also been called Generals in a few stories by Carl Barks. The Troop leaders' uniforms is militaristic in design and is often white in color with richly decorated gold embroideries; with their headgear often being a woodchuck cap or other types of military headwear. They are also often wearing a large number of meritorious and elaborate medals, badges and ribbons which makes them look very dignified and grandiose, and in some cases extremely pompous. Only Junior Woodchucks can later become Troop leaders.
Again, according to Don Rosa's story W.H.A.D.A.L.O.T.T.A.J.A.R.G.O.N. the Junior Woodchucks of the World is governed by the Supreme Council; which is probably part of the World Office of the Junior Woodchucks, which is the organization's top office. The council consists of nine high-ranking members whom collectively is called the B.I.G.S.H.OT.S. (Bureaucratic and Imposing Gathering of Supreme High Officials of the Topmost Strata) with the H.E.A.D.H.O.N.C.H.O. (Highest Executive Administrator of Divisional Headquarters and Organizer of Nearly Complete Hierarchical Overkill) as the head of the council. The Supreme Council is located in the Junior Woodchucks' World Headquarter in the City of Duckburg.
However other high ranking titles of uncertain position in leadership has been used within the organization in stories by Carl Barks and others. Some of these include Commander-in-Chief and Exalted Grand Marshal.
A few other acronymized titles within the Junior Woodchucks' leadership include:
I.T.S.A.A.D.C.O.T.F.O.I.K. (International Twelve-Star Admiral And Deputy Custodian Of The Fountain Of Inexhaustible Knowledge), a very high ranking title which also seem to have some authority over the Littlest Chickadees patrol in the story The Chickadee Challenge (Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #181) written and drawn by Carl Barks, by declaring the bridge-building challenge between the two organisations as a tie; suggesting that the Littlest Chickadees is somehow part of or associated with the Junior Woodchuck of the World in some way.
H.I.S.T.O.R.Y.N.U.T. (Hypercritical Inquiring Seeker into Tales of Old and Rumors of Yore, as well as Noser-outer of Unprovable Tommyrot)
T.O.P.B.R.A.S.S. (Thunderbolt of Omniscient Perspicacity and Boss Ramrod of Abounding Succor Spreaders)
O.G.U.F.O.O.L. and M.A.S.L.L.B.P.C.M. (Omnipotent Giver of Unimpeachably Full-bodied Observations on Omniscient Logic and Mighty Admirable Sachem of the Long Limousine and Benevolent Paver of the Clubhouse Mortgage)
H.I.S.S. and P.O.A.H.M. (Hardheaded Intuitive Sagacity Spreader and Possessor Of All Hiss Marbles)
J.A.W.B.O.N.E. (Judicious, Abstruse, Wise Bestower of Neolithic Edification). This title is held by the duckbill character Philodemus Gentlefogg of Duckburg Burrow Number 22, seen in The Junior Woodchucks story Let Sleeping Bones Lie (Uncle Scrooge #358)
