The MALCS Executive Committee (EC), together with the Coordinating Committee (CC), serves as the decision-making body for the organization. Online elections for open positions on the MALCS Executive & Coordinating Committees take place annually in the month prior to the Summer Institute.
For candidates who seek Executive Committee positions, the EC meets monthly via internet and in person twice a year: in Winter (midyear) and at the Summer Institute. MALCS provides limited travel support to EC members for these meetings. All officers must be current members of MALCS in good standing.
