ANZAM is a professional membership academy, operating as a Company Limited by Guarantee. It is a non-profit organisation.
The governing body of ANZAM is the Board of Directors which is chaired by the President with support from the President-Elect and Immediate Past President. The Board also includes a Secretary and Treasurer, elected representatives from five geographical regions across Australia and New Zealand, and two representatives for postgraduate students.
