A member elected Council governs the Association. The Council comprises a minimum of 12 individuals and a maximum of 14, subject to the nominations received from member firms. Individual Council members are elected for a three-year term and the Chairman is selected from amongst the members of Council and serves for a one-year term.
The work of Council is supported by a network of Working Groups, the activities of which are prioritised and coordinated by one of seven Steering Groups. The Programme Office, which includes the Chairperson of each Steering Group, oversees the allocation and resolution of issues at the Working and Steering Group levels.
The day-to-day affairs of the Association are managed by a full-time secretariat reporting to the Chief Executive.
