The API Council is composed of the Bureau and representatives from different national, regional and professional groups.

Each group, consisting of at least seven members, can designate a representative to the Council, provided this representative presents a list of at least seven signatures, or a majority, of the group he or she is called upon to represent. The signatories must be paid-up members of the association.

The Council meets at least once a month upon written invitation of the Secretary General. Absence from Council meetings can lead to the mandate being removed.

The current Council is composed of the members of the Bureau and the following journalists:
