ASCA Advocacy Policy Manual 2019

ASCA policy is determined by members. Members submit Proposed Advocacy Resolutions, that are presented at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to the membership. Resolutions passed by a majority vote at the AGM become Advocacy Policy statements of ASCA and are utilized in committee work and advocating change to the Education Ministry.

Policies are added and updated each year after the Annual General Meeting in the ASCA Policy Manual. It contains a complete record of all policies passed in the history of the Association. The manual also indicates overarching advocacy policy statements regarding specific topic areas.

Outdated, or obsolete policies can be addressed at the Annual General Meeting, in the form of “housekeeping items”, for review and updating by the membership.
