The ASA in recent years went through a very exciting transformation, from a committee setup to a more professional structure of a Board and a formal executive. We still operate as a non-profit organisation, but now have part-time office staff to help raise the level of service available to all members. The Board, consisting of unpaid volunteers elected annually at the AGM, conscientiously works at seeking further industry and strategic alliances to maximise recognition of and benefits to the Australian songwriting community. The ASA, Australia’s only truly national songwriters’ association, is buoyed by power of the song and the extensive amount of talent to be found in this nation.
