WESTAC is governed by a Board of Directors, an Executive Committee and the Human Resources and Finance & Governance Subcommittees.

The Board of Directors is responsible for the policies and overall program of WESTAC. Directors are elected by members to ensure balanced representation across all sectors, which include carriers/logistics, labour, ports/terminals, producers/shippers and governments. They are elected for a one-year term at WESTAC’s Annual General Meeting. Board seats are automatically allocated to Sustaining Members. The Board's structure reflects the general composition of the total membership.

The Chairmanship of WESTAC rotates annually between the four Western provinces.
