Constitution and Governance
ASI’s Constitution is a legal document that sets out ASI’s objects, powers, responsibilities and overall management. It was first adopted by members at the April 2016 Annual General Meeting. An updated version was adopted by ASI members through a special resolution by e-ballot in December 2019.
The ASI Governance Handbook provides an overview of the design and implementation of ASI’s multi-stakeholder governance model. It is aimed at orienting and guiding the various participants in ASI’s governance structure, including Board directors, Committee members and ASI staff. It includes the ASI Code of Conduct and principles for consensus-based decision-making. ASI surveys its members annually on governance, and the Handbook is overseen and periodically updated by the ASI Board.
