LEADERSHIP AND COMMITTEES

ATCA is governed by a nine-member executive committee. Three full ATCA members are elected to three-year terms at each annual conference. No one may serve more than two terms consecutively, although they may run again after being off the excom. The excom elects its own chair and vice-chair as well as ATCA’s secretary and treasurer, and it appoints chairs of standing and ad hoc committees.
