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.

Letter from the President

To ATA Members and Visitors,

If you attended the AAA Annual Meeting you know we had an excellent ATA representation in research sessions and panels.  I want to thank Steven Savoy (Chair), Andrew Finley (Vice Chair), and the 33 members of the Annual Meeting Program Committee for all of their work in planning this program.  By all accounts it was a huge success!  Thanks to each of you for your service.

If you did not attend the AAA/ATA Business Meeting, all ATA committee reports are finalized and should be available on the website soon.  Please take a few moments to review them and apprise yourself.
