The activities of the Council of Canadian Academies (CCA) are implemented by a small staff, under the direction of a full-time president. CCA staff members provide support to expert panels with research, writing, and overall management of logistics in the production of assessments. Staff members also support the work of the Scientific Advisory Committee, particularly with respect to analysis of proposed assessment topics, identification of panel membership, and report review processes.
