The Council's regular business is conducted by an elected Executive Committee which consists of a President, Past President, President Elect, Secretary, and Treasurer. In addition, the Committee includes 12 representatives from the following constituencies: one representing the universities, one representing the four-year state colleges, one representing the junior or community colleges, one collegiate representative at-large; and 8 representatives from the secondary schools. The secondary school representatives are elected from each of the seven geographical districts and represent schools in these districts. The eighth representative is selected from the private high school sector in Colorado. In addition, each committee chairperson is a member of the Executive Committee.
