The territory of the regional council is bounded by the Jezreel Valley in the west, in the north by the Lower Galilee, to the east by the Jordan River, and the south by the Jordan Valley and Samarian hills. About 12,000 people live in the sixteen kibbutzim, six moshavim, and 2 community villages located in its municipal territory, the city of Beit She'an lies in the centre of the territory, but is an independent municipality.

The regional council's offices are located on Road 7079 just east of Beit She'an.
