An organisational structure to suit our members
The ACi is organised along corporate lines. We have four regions with the regional head sitting as a member of the Executive Committee to represent the region. The regional heads have sub-regional heads and country heads who form the regional management committees.
If you are interested in becoming a country head or sub-regional head and wish to learn more, please register your interest via Contact Us and the appropriate Executive Committee regional head will contact you to explain the role in more detail.
Please note country heads and sub-regional head positions on regional management committees must hold in-house roles. Country heads and sub-regional heads work pro bono in the interest of building the association.
