The AMA's constitution outlines how the AMA is structured and governed and its main activities. It also explains the roles, responsibilities and powers of the board, directors, federal council, management and members.
The AMA Federal Council meets quarterly and is the AMA’s main policy-making body. It is a forum to identify and debate emerging issues of relevance to the membership.
The Federal Council’s primary role is to:
- Form the policy of the AMA;
- Propose changes to existing policy; and
- Elect representatives to roles and committees
