The ACA consists of the ACA Board, the ACA Council, its Committees inclusive of the Young Corrosion Group (YCG), and its Head Office. Each of them plays their part in the governance, management, composition, and technical expertise of the Association. Outside of the Head Office, the roles within the Association are elected through the Membership, making the Association an accountable organisation and representative of its Members.
Within the Association, the Board acts as its governing body, the Council acts as an executive representation of the Branches in their interest, Committees provide expertise on the functions of different governing initiatives, and the Head Office performs the day-to-day operational and managerial duties.
This is to provide proper corporate governance whilst separating the operational and managerial functions of the Assocation.
The Branches make up the core of our Association and its activities, and as such comprise the majority of the constituents of the ACA Board, the ACA Council, and any Committees. The Membership is not listed below due to privacy reasons. However, Members who aren’t apart of the stated Board, Council, and Committees contribute immeasurably to the Association through other means.
