The committee consists of a core executive holding current executive positions, immediate past members and elect-members who will take on responsibility of the core positions in the next term. Additional non-executive members will help to run events and communications. All members must be members of OHBM in good standing at the time of each year's annual conference.

A call for members will be opened annually in August with elections taking place in September. Nominations for election will be reviewed and selections made for interviews by all current serving members of the committee. Interviews will be held by the current chair and at least one other committee member, feedback for which will be reviewed by all committee members before final election decisions are made.

The SIG is committed to diversity and gender equality. Committee membership will be made up of at least 40% representation from each gender and at least two student members. Should election fail to achieve this, a new call for membership will be opened to achieve minimum representation.
