Structure of IADSA

IADSA is composed of member associations and companies. We are managed on a day to day basis by a Board comprising the Chair, Vice-Chair and Treasurer, who are elected by the members for a two year term.

Two advisory groups advise the Board, representing associations and companies: the Executive Council and the Company Council respectively.

The members meet once a year at the Annual Meeting.
