GOVERNANCE

The AIA is governed by our Council, which ensures that we deliver our objectives as outlined in our Memorandum of Association. The Council also decides on AIA’s strategic objectives, monitors our performance in relation to them and oversees our annual budget.

"Supporting members will be my priority, whatever their different needs and geographical location, I believe that they are our best asset." Les Bradley, AIA President

The Council currently comprises 17 members who are elected by AIA members at our Annual General Meeting. The Council encompasses members from all of our key jurisdictions around the world, representing all of our members and reflecting the AIA’s global nature.
