Federal Council & Executive Committee

The ASTA governing body is a Federal Council. It comprises a President and Treasurer, either the Immediate Past President or the President-Elect, the Chief Executive Officer (a non-voting member) plus two representatives from each of the eight member associations. ASTA Councillors, with the exception of the Chief Executive Officer, serve in an honorary capacity. The Federal Council usually meets face to face twice each year; in July, before the annual national conference CONASTA and in late October.

The ASTA Executive Committee comprises the President, Treasurer, either Immediate Past President or President-Elect, and the Chief Executive Officer. The members of the Federal Executive meet and communicate regularly throughout the year.
