One component of CHSSA leadership is the Executive Council. The Executive Council members gain their positions through election or appointment. Elections are held during the annual May meeting. Those running for office must be council members.
Elected officers include the President, Vice-President of Activities, and the Vice-president of Curriculum. The President appoints the secretary, bulletin editor, treasurer, and historian as well as the chairs of standing committees.
Each member of the Executive Council has duties identified in the Constitution and By-Laws of CHSSA. The Executive Council does not have the power to make unilateral decisions unless issues are remanded to them by the CHSSA council.
