About Council

Council is the governing body of the Australian Society of Archivists Inc. Its role is comparable to that of a Board of Directors. It formulates policies, sets the strategic direction of the Society and monitors the organisation's financial sustainability and performance.

The ASA Council has two broad roles:

  • to ensure compliance through monitoring the Society's business and activities, and self-regulation of Councillors' conduct and
  • to continuously improve the performance of the ASA by overseeing strategy formulation and policy

Council meets once a month. The standing agenda is:

  • adopt previous minutes
  • peruse and approve monthly finance reports
  • peruse and approve Committee reports
  • general business
  • Council adopts the annual budget.
