The president (Executive branch) appoints the cabinet and manages it.

The Secretary of State, Secretary of the Treasury, Secretary of Defense, Secretary of Interior, Secretary of Agriculture, Secretary of Commerce, etc. are cabinet level positions in the president's cabinet. There are currently 15.

The president is expected to make appointments to the cabinet positions. He does not to have any cabinet meetings or consult with the cabinet in any particular way. It is surely to his advantage to have well-run executive departments. If the President wants to combine some positions or eliminate cabinet positions, he needs to get Congress to act. ( The phrase "form a cabinet" is rarely used in the US- it may be a term used in the parliamentary type of government.)

The president appoints the cabinet, subject to Senate approval. He can not create or eliminate cabinet positions. Only Congress can do that.

The President's appointments to his cabinet much be approved by the Senate in order to take effect.

A cabinet position is not an official position in government -- there is no constitutional amendment or law requiring or prohibiting a cabinet. Therefore, the President of the United States may appoint or fire any member of his cabinet that he sees fit. The President may also create new cabinet positions or destroy positions at his sole discretion. The President may also choose to have no cabinet at all. In short, the President appoints a person to be in his cabinet, and that person is in.

The are indeed 15 cabinet positions. I do not think of the Vice-President as being a cabinet member although the president may invite him to cabinet meeting.

Secretaries of State, Defense, Interior, Treasury, Commerce
