The WCA's teams and committees are an integral part of the organization and perform the day-to-day tasks that are required to keep it functioning. These committees are made up of WCA community members, including Delegates and competitors. Each team has a leader, whose role is to ensure the proper functioning of the team and guide other team members. Councils are a special type of team that serve an advisory role to the WCA Board and are made up of community members, not WCA staff members. When there are committee, team, or council openings, information about how to apply is posted on the front page.
