The AA is governed by a National Council, Board and 17 District Councils.

Each District Council elects one representative to the AA’s National Council, which is the paramount governing body of the Association. The National Council meets quarterly to consider matters of national policy and to receive reports from the Board and Chief Executive. The National Council has delegated authority over the AA’s commercial affairs to the AA Board, which consists of the President, Vice President and six other members elected from past and sitting National Councillors.

The District Councils select delegates to attend the AA’s conference every March, which also coincides with the Association’s annual general meeting.
