Raisman used her voice in a powerful speech against former Olympic doctor Larry Nassar, who has been accused of sexually abusing more than 140 Olympic gymnasts.
Chairman Paul Parilla, vice chairman Jay Binder and treasurer Bitsy Kelley stepped down following stinging criticism of the organisation's handling of the Nassar case by victims who include Olympic superstar Simone Biles and other gold medallists.
Miller was not shaken by Nassar's presence, informing Judge Rosmarie Aquilina and the courtroom that - one year after USA Gymnastics reportedly fired Nassar amid complaints of abuse and one week before Michigan State University did the same - she may have been the doctor's final victim.
On Twitter, USA Gymnastics President Kerry Perry wrote of the resignations "We support their decisions to resign at this time".
"We believe this step will allow us to more effectively move forward in implementing change within our organisation", the body said.

Following Miller's testimony, a Michigan State spokesman told Matt Mencarini of the Lansing State Journal that Nassar's former patients will not be billed.
"I, like all those that have spoken, didn't choose this circumstance to have the right to be standing in front of this podium today", she said.
USA Gymnastics Board Chairman Paul Parilla was among three officials who resigned Monday. Don't talk about it because you're going to tip off the investigation.' So I didn't want to jeopardize anything. "I and so many others would have never, ever met you, Larry".
Nassar, 54, has admitted molesting athletes during medical treatment when he was employed by Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics.
"Larry, you do realize now that we, this group of women you so heartlessly abused over such a long period of time, are now a force, and you are nothing", she said, looking directly at him during a hearing on Friday.

Nassar was already sentenced to 60 years in prison for child pornography December 7. Almost 100 victim statements have been given by women and girls who say Nassar sexually assaulted them under the guise of medical treatment.
Perry said the board will work to "ensure that our culture, policies and actions reflect our commitment to those we serve". "It's very much about healing and providing hope to survivors of sexual assault and physical abuse".
Larry Nassar is escorted into the courtroom last Thursday.
Miller offered advice to the court and directly to Nassar as part of her impact statement. He has already been sentenced to 60 years in prison for child pornography crimes. "We're aware that some knew, but there are likely many more opportunities these individuals had to stop you".
