At the members-only session of the Annual General Meeting, ASI members voted to adopt a definitive Constitution, replacing an initial short-form Constitution established for ASI’s initial incorporation. The new Constitution sets a firm foundation for future governance and decision-making within ASI involving its multi-stakeholder membership.

Among other operational details, the Constitution lists the ASI’s four guiding objects. It further sets out the 6 specific member classes and their respective voting power, aligned to ensure fairness and balance regardless of the number of members in a particular member class. The Constitution also sets out the minimum/maximum representation from specific member classes on the Board of Directors and Standards Committee, the latter of which also has mandated representation from the ASI’s Indigenous Peoples Advisory Forum.
