The Council consists of seven members. Two members are appointed by the Governor, two members are appointed by the President Pro Tempore of the Senate, two members are appointed by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and one member is appointed by the State Board of Health.

Appointments are for three-year terms. Members of the Advisory Council serve at the pleasure of and may be removed from office by the appointing authority. Members continue to serve until their successors are appointed. Vacancies are filled in the same manner as the original appointments. A majority of the council members constitute a quorum. The Council must meet at least twice a year, but no more than four times a year. A Chair, Vice-Chair and Secretary must be elected from among the members. The Council can only meet as required for election of officers, establishment of meeting dates and times, rule development, review and recommendation, and adoption of nonbinding resolutions to the State Department of Health or the State Board of Health concerning matters brought before the Council. Special meetings may be called by the Chair or by the concurrence of any three members.
