The Act authorizes the Secretary to appoint a total of 22 members to the MHCC. 21 members have voting rights; the 22nd member represents the Secretary and is a non-voting position. Selection of consensus committee members is based on selection procedures published by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) or successor organization. Service on the MHCC is voluntary.
At the Secretary’s discretion, MHCC Members serve for a term of three years not to exceed two consecutive terms. A rotation of seven members will be maintained on a yearly basis within reason; however, the Secretary retains the option to remove and appoint members.
In addition to the 21 voting members, there is a Designated Federal Official (DFO) that is appointed by the Secretary to represent the Secretary on the consensus committee.

- Producers - Producers or retailers of manufactured housing
- Users - Persons representing consumer interests, such as consumer organizations, recognized consumer leaders, and owners who are residents of manufactured homes
