This current set-up of the Management Council has been reviewed to enable the Council to be strategically involved with the growth of PSDC. The 4 Executive Committees (Exco) as shown in the structure above were formed to ensure a better communication between the Management Council and the PSDC Team. This is to better position the Management Council for decision making and to help resolve conflicts when they arise. The MC Excos will meet on a monthly basis to review PSDC’s performance and will report to the Management Council during the quarterly meetings.

Under each of the MC Exco, there are various sub-committees which carry out different responsibilities such as the Training Committee and many others. Among its many tasks, the Training Committee prepares yearly training calendars of courses to be conducted. These representatives also evaluate and obtain feedback on their effectiveness. As a result, PSDC's training reflects the needs of the industry and its courses are able to figure prominently in member companies' annual training plan.
