The Synod of Bishops is the executive organ of the Council. The Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia is divided into dioceses. All dioceses are under the authority of their diocesan bishops. In each diocese there is a diocesan council, and also a diocesan ecclesiastical court. According the the Regulations of the The Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, diocesan council meetings with the participation of the clergy, laymen and representatives of monasteries, church brotherhoods, schools and charitable organizations must be convened no less than once every three years
