Guiding the Operations of CCST
Two major bodies work together to implement CCST's mission and programming: the Board, and the eponymous Council.
The Council itself is comprised of up to 30 California-based scientists, industry leaders, and scholars of the highest distinction. The expertise makeup of the Council tends to reflect the diversity of priority issue areas facing the State of California at any point in time.

Purpose of the Council
The Council serves as the principal subject matter body of experts fulfilling CCST’s charter to respond to the Governor, the Legislature, and other entities. The Council performs two primary functions:
When CCST receives a request for science and technology advice from state leaders, our staff relays this call for assistance to CCST Council Members, who then respond with suggestions for relevant experts from their field or sector of expertise.
When the Governor, the Legislature, or other state entities request that CCST conduct an independent assessment, CCST Council Members are called upon to serve on the project's Steering Committee, and recruit other leading experts as report authors.
