The Chesapeake Executive Council was established by the Chesapeake Bay Agreement of 1983 to coordinate the work of restoring and protecting Chesapeake Bay. In accordance with the 1987 Chesapeake Bay Agreement, the Council is the governing body for these efforts. Parties to the 1987 Agreement are the State of Maryland; the Commonwealths of Pennsylvania and Virginia; the District of Columbia; the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, representing the federal government; and the Chesapeake Bay Commission. On June 28, 2000, the same six signatories approved a third agreement, Chesapeake 2000, which sets goals for Bay restoration by 2010.

The Council's six members serve ex officio. They include the governors of Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia; the mayor of the District of Columbia; the administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; and the chair of the Chesapeake Bay Commission.

Five committees assist the Council. They are the Citizens Advisory Committee; the Implementation Committee; the Local Government Advisory Committee on the Chesapeake Bay Program; the Principals' Staff Committee; and the Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee.
