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

The Council currently comprises 16 members who are elected at the Annual General Meeting; encompassing all our key jurisdictions around the world, representing all of our members and reflecting the AIA’s global nature.
