Traditionally, the World Schools Debating Council met annually to approve changes to the Rules, appoint hosts, and discuss other matters pertaining to the Championships. An e-mail list also exists to facilitate discussion between meetings and votes may be taken either at the physical meetings or by e-mail. See the section of the Rules regarding the Worlds Council.

An Executive Committee is elected annually by the World Council to chair working groups looking at WSDC issues and make certain decisions within their remit.

Minutes of Worlds Council Meetings are available from 1999, 2001, 2002, 2003,2004, 2005, 2006 , 2007, 2009, and 2010.

As of 2009, World Council Meetings were replaced by Annual General Meetings of the newly formed World Schools Debating Championships Ltd (WSDC Ltd). All members are invited to take part in the AGMs and other meetings.
