ASTA is driven by its membership, which is represented by a board of directors comprised of members of the executive committee as well as all living past-presidents of the association, seven division chairs, five committee chairs and an ex-officio state & regional association representative.

The executive committee is comprised of the association’s chairman, first vice chair and second vice chair; general counsel, three most recent past-chairs; three directors-at-large, regional vice presidents representing U.S. northeast, southeast, southern, central, north central, northwestern and western regions; and representatives to/from the Canadian Seed Trade Association and the Mexican Seed Trade Association.
