The Associated Clan MacLeod Societies have a constitutional set of objectives, and this same constitution also gives ACMS powers to act in furtherance of these objectives. The work of ACMS may be performed as operational activities or as projects. When a group of volunteers come together to perform this work, they may be recognised as a committee.
ACMS currently recognises several committees, each of which is named after an outstanding Chief of the Clan.
- Rory Mor Committee: fund development
- Alasdair Crotach Committee: project development
- Dame Flora Committee: produce and co-ordinate Clan communications
