"An organized body of administrators or investigators" (Board) vs "An assembly of persons called together for consultation, deliberation, or discussion." (Council) - Obvious :)

One is spelled c-o-u-n-c-i-l and the other is spelled b-o-a-r-d.

Seriously though, the answer probably depends on the circumstances. What some organization might label a board, another might call a council.
