Federal Council

The ADA is governed by Federal Council, which is responsible for the strategic direction, vision, policy and high level operation of the Association. 

Federal Council comprises 17 Councillors who are Officers of the Association and who are appointed by ADA Branches. Branch representatives, usually the President, attend Federal Council meetings so Councillors can gain the views of Branches during discussions, however they do not vote.
