Operations Manual for ATA Officers, Trustees, and Committees

The links below are to the latest revision (2007, except where noted) of the initial 'Board Book' produced in 1993-94 by John Everett and Shirley Dennis-Escoffier. As Anna Fowler stated in the preface of the original document, "The purpose of this book is to provide information to the officers and trustees about the responsibilities of their positions and to give some history about the ATA and its activities and awards." This manual is intended to reduce the confusion that sometimes arises in a professional organization that meets only twice a year.

Because this is a dynamic organization and changes will always occur the decision was made not to produce a bound version of this handbook. This will allow for the timely update of any changes that are made to the handbook.

A Letter From Our President


Jenny Brown
2023-2024
ATA Section President

Greetings ATA Members and Colleagues,                             

Welcome to the 2023/2024 academic year!

First, thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve as your president this year. The ATA is an extraordinarily collegial group, and I feel privileged that it has been a significant part of my professional life since I was a PhD student at the University of Texas, 20-plus years ago. Over the years, I have seen the ATA change and evolve to better meet the needs of its members, but one thing remains the same ­– the ATA continues to be my primary professional home outside my own university.
