Affiliate Delegates Criteria


The duties of affiliate delegates are set by the affiliate societies. If the affiliate society wants the delegate to make a report to the board of directors when he or she returns from the ASRT Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting, or if the affiliate wants the delegate to write a report for publication in the affiliate newsletter, then it is up to the affiliate to tell the delegate. The delegate represents the affiliate and votes on matters when the House is in session.

Each affiliate society is encouraged to use the affiliate delegate as the primary information liaison between itself and the ASRT House of Delegates. Affiliate delegates should provide a report to their affiliate. ASRT representation may also be provided at the affiliate's annual conference. Responsibilities could include:

  • Provide an ASRT update.
  • Install officers.
  • Provide ASRT membership applications and brochures.
  • Encourage and invite support of the ASRT Education and Research Foundation.


  1. Two delegates and two alternate delegates shall be elected or appointed by each ASRT affiliate in accordance with affiliate procedures.
