CSI is organized into 10 geographical regions, there are 13 chapters in the West Region. The region was incorporated in the State of California September 25th, 1978. The function of the West Region is to facilitate communication between the Institute and the chapters and provide networking opportunities between chapters.

One Director, who is elected by the West Region members, represents the West Region on the Institute Board of Directors. A Board of Directors govern the West Region, consisting of the elected officers, one representative from each chapter in the West Region, a nonvoting student member, and the Institute Director from West Region in an advisory capacity. Region business is conducted at meetings as set by the board. There are typically two meetings each year: one during an annual meeting at the West Region Conference and one other meeting. In addition, a region caucus is held during the Institute Annual Convention to discuss business appropriate to the Convention.
