Structure

The IASA is run by a Committee of Trustees who are elected by the Membership at the Annual General Meeting normally held in May of each year. As well as the Committee of Trustees, there are Standing Committees, some with a number of sub-committees. The chairs of these are responsible for reporting to the Trustees. Most of the committees meet two or three times a year, as appropriate, and the sub-committees (e.g. Bulletin, Monographs, etc.) meet as often as necessary for the completion of their tasks. The membership of the committees is outlined below.

The IASA Honorary Secretary is Amy Crossman.

Patron

Professor Valeria Piacentini
In 2020 the Committee of Trustees elected Professor Valeria Piacentini as Patron of the IASA in recognition of her outstanding support for the IASA and its predecessors  over many years and her generosity in providing funds that have enabled us to award grants for research in Arabia.
