The Council has the overall responsibility for the conduct and business of the Royal Agricultural Society of WA (RASWA). Working in an entirely voluntary capacity, Councillors are responsible for the policy and general good conduct of RASWA. Past Presidents of RASWA also attend Council and take an active interest in the affairs of RASWA.

Councillors head a large number of corporate and specialist Perth Royal Show Section committees responsible for promoting, developing and managing RASWA and the presentation of the Perth Royal Show.
