ATLA > About ATLA > Who We Are > Governance


    In 1991 ATLA adopted the Carver Policy Governance® model of governance for the Association.

    ATLA's Board of Directors has adopted policies for four specific areas:

    • Organizational Ends: policies that further refine the four organizational ends identified when the original mission statement was adopted.
    • Executive Limitations: policies that restrict the Executive Director's freedom of action in designated areas.
    • Board-Executive Relationship: policies that guide the monitoring process by which the Board evaluates the Executive Director's effectiveness in pursuing the Association's organizational ends
    • Board Process: policies that guide the Board's own activities
