The Commission is the governing body of the American Mafia ,  formed in The Commission replaced the "Boss of all Bosses" title with a ruling committee consisting of the New York Five Families bosses and the bosses of the Chicago Outfit and the Buffalo crime family.
Before the Commission was formed, the American Mafia crime families were under control of one man known as the capo di tutti capi "boss of all bosses", literally "head of all heads".
This man held great power over all their bosses, leading to disputes and wars. Masseria was murdered on April 15, , allowing Maranzano to assume the title of capo di tutti capi.
Maranzano began to divide all the national criminal gangs into several crime families. Charles "Lucky" Luciano and his allies decided that Maranzano would be removed, and he was murdered on September 10, Charlie Luciano established a Mafia board of directors to be known as "The Commission" to oversee all Mafia activities in the United States and serve to mediate conflicts between families.
The Commission agreed to hold meetings every five years or when they needed to discuss family problems. The Commission held the power of approving a new boss before he could take over officially.
