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 online video communications 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.
