For a project of this magnitude, a careful amount of planning is required; the council exists to serve this requirement. Usually, the more senior members are elected (or given power by graduating members) each spring for the next year’s team.
The current council consists of seven individuals who have shown great dedication to this team in the past years.
The Team Captain is the face of the team. He/she represents the tractor team in all its glory as well as its failures. In addition, the team captain is usually one of the most experienced and knowledgeable persons on the team–making them a good leader to point the team in the right direction. A great deal of respect should be given to this brave individual.

The Treasurer monitors project funds. He/she makes sure we don’t go overboard with spending sponsorship money and then having none leftover for other important items.
The Design Chair monitors all designs for the tractor. The Design Chair is usually experienced and knowledgeable of the tractor and all of its components. Along with the Captain and the Treasurer, he/she makes sure a design is within reason. All designs must go through the Design Chair, the Captain, and the Treasurer before they are finalized.
