ASFA Governance

State Executives

The State Executive Committees operate under rules established by the ASFA Board of Directors and report to the Member Services Committee. State Executive Committee members are elected by ASFA members. Their key focus is member engagement, whereby they act as ambassadors for ASFA and formulate an event program for their divisional area.
