Structure and organization

Executive Committee

AFSM is organized by an Executive Committee composed of twelve members who serve a term of two years. All AFSM members are welcome to be candidates when the Executive Committee election is held every second year in October. A new Executive Committee was elected in October 2012. The first monthly meeting of the new Committee was held in November, and officers were elected and responsibilities assigned.

General Assembly

The AFSM General Assembly is convened every two years in October. During the General Assembly, the Executive Committee reports on activities and important issues. Members can express their opinions on how activities are conducted and give suggestions for action.


The AFSM statutes outline how the Association functions. Revisions to the statues are drafted by the Executive Committee and brought to the General Assembly for ratification.
