National Conference

National Conference is the supreme policy making body of the ASU. It meets biennially (once every two years).

Branches send delegates to National Conference according to a formula based on number of members in each Branch. National elected officers are also delegates to National Conference with one vote each.

All National Conference meetings are recorded in the calendar, along with the city in which they are to take place.

If you have any queries about National Conference, please contact the National Office.
