Governance

The ASRT is governed by its articles of incorporation, bylaws, a House of Delegates and an elected Board of Directors.

Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws

Bylaws Mallet and Gavel

Articles of incorporation are the primary law of an association used to establish the general organization and governing of the association to achieve corporate existence. Bylaws are the secondary law of an association best used to detail how the society is formed and run. Bylaws are rules adopted and maintained by an association or society that define and direct its internal structure and management. They are subordinate, and complementary, to an association's articles of incorporation.

Board of Directors

Board of Directors

The American Society of Radiologic Technologists has an eight-member Board of Directors. Each year, the ASRT membership elects a president-elect, vice president, secretary and treasurer. After serving one year on the Board, the president-elect is elevated to the office of president and the current president becomes chairman of the Board. The remaining two members of the Board – speaker and vice speaker – are elected by the ASRT House of Delegates at its business meeting during the Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting. The new Board is installed at the annual meeting in June each year.
