ASCL has as its ruling ‘parliament’ a group of elected members collectively known as Council, which meets four times a year. All categories of members are represented and the ratio of Council representatives to members is more generous in ASCL than in any of the other teachers’ professional associations. We are proud of this democratic base - it is fundamental to serving our diverse membership.
It is at Council that association policy is determined and that national officers, including the president, are elected. Council members are often the ones to represent ASCL at government meetings. Council membership is often described as the best in-service training members can get; the quality of debate is exceptionally high and there is a feeling of being genuinely close to the centre of events.
