WSSCC is proud of its democratic governance structure, whereby members elect a Steering Committee that makes strategic and policy decisions.

WSSCC is a membership organization and it relies on its diverse and actively-engaged membership both to direct and to provide credibility for its work. A people-centered approach is the foundation upon which WSSCC is built and this is reflected in its organizational structure at the highest level, the Steering Committee. A member-elected Steering Committee means that WSSCC's membership as a whole both directs and provides credibility for WSSCC's work.

The Steering Committee decides the policies and strategies of WSSCC, manages the governance process, and is accountable to both the members and the donors for its work.

The Steering Committee includes a Chair, Regional Members, Partner Agency Members, Ex officio Members, Non-voting Invitees, and Permanent Non-voting Observers.
