The Council holds plenary meetings at various times of the year. Agenda items to be discussed at these meetings are determined by the President in consultation with Council members. The most important considerations in determining agenda items include the SSC's work programme, direct requests made by the Federal Council and Federal Offices as well as the need to take a stance on current items on the political agenda. The Secretariat prepares these meetings in consultation with the President.

Outside of regular plenary meetings, Council members may also hold working group meetings as needed.
