The Trustees are the governing body of the charity. The Executive Council has the overall responsibility for determining ADASS policy. 

The Coordinating Group is allocated responsibility for the development of policy for high profile and cross cutting issues. Its specific work programme is agreed annually at the Policy Event.

The Policy Networks and Single Leads/Taskforces develop policy in relation to the areas covered by their remits. The ADASS Regions contribute to policy development by sending representatives to the Executive Council, Coordinating Group and Policy Networks. ADASS Regions also contribute directly to specific initiatives.  

ADASS Associates contribute to policy through membership of Policy Networks and are approached to offer their expertise on specific projects/initiatives.

The detailed roles and responsibilities are set out the report attached.
