The ACMS Management Council is made up of the MacLeod Chiefs, the National Society Presidents, the ACMS Officers, and other elected members of Council. These positions and their scope of authority are described in the ACMS Constitution. The ACMS Constitution also sets out a process for the election of Officers and members of Management Council at Parliament. 

Available Terms of Reference for Management Council positions are included in the ACMS Business Handbook. It is further noted in the ACMS Constitution that:
5.3 All nominations, apart from incumbents who wish to stand again, shall be made through National Society Presidents or their designated proxy. There is therefore an expectation that National Society Presidents will satisfy themselves that nominees have experience relevant to the post e.g. having held office in a National Society; having been secretary or treasurer of a similar organisation; having been chairman; or other functional equivalent.
If a prospective candidate is unfamiliar with the operations of ACMS Council, that candidate is strongly urged to speak to the incumbent to become familiar with the practical responsibilities, relationships, and financial commitment required. Contact details for the incumbents can be found in the current “yellow pages” of the Clan MacLeod Magazine.
