As per the ASSITEJ International constitution, the governing body of this Association consists of:
• The General Assembly
• The Executive Committee
The Executive Committee comprises a maximum of fifteen members with the right to vote, including the President, three Vice Presidents, the Secretary General, and the Treasurer.
Elections for the Executive Committee of the Association are held at a meeting of the General Assembly once every three calendar years. The General Assembly shall elect the members of the Executive Committee as representatives of the ASSITEJ National Centres or Professional Networks. Each National Centre or Professional Network may have only one representative on the Executive Committee.
Each elected Executive Committee member must come from a different country, with the exception of two members only, provided that one has been proposed by an ASSITEJ National Centre and one by a Professional Network.
The General Assembly shall elect the President and Secretary General from those standing for the Executive Committee. From amongst the members of the Executive Committee, the General Assembly shall elect the Vice Presidents and Treasurer, who shall be nominated in a meeting of the new Executive Committee. They shall be elected in their personal capacity. The officers and members of the Executive Committee shall be chosen to represent, as fairly as possible, the interests of the organisation and the diversity of all the ASSITEJ National Centres and Professional Networks, taking into account such factors as geography, ethnic origin, gender, and cultural identity. They should also reflect strengths that serve the concerns and priorities of the ASSITEJ International Working Plan for the elected term.
