The member organizations are allocated a permanent number of delegate(s). The allocation of delegates is as follows:

In addition an additional 1 delegate position is rotated between SAS, the Coblentz Society, and ACS AD through a 3 year cycle (1 year each organization).

The governing board delegates represent their respective member organizations at FACSS meetings and are ultimately responsible for communicating FACSS activities to their respective member organizations.

In all voting matters there are currently a maximum of 21 votes with the Governing Board distributed via 2 votes from the FACSS Executive Committee, 2 from the SciX Conference Chairpersons, plus the 17 delegates from the member organizations. This voting distribution ensures that each of the member organizations has a voice in the actions and directions of the federation and that the federation's action represents the consensus opinion of the member organizations.
