The AAS is an incorporated association and as such is bound by its Constitution, which outlines the Society’s structure and functions, especially concerning its membership, governance, meetings, and activities. An Executive Committee of seven elected members runs the Society, each performing different duties depending on the position held, and who work closely with and supervise the functions performed by the AAS Administrator (available Thursdays and Fridays). The Executive Committee, along with the Administrator, the ANSA Chairperson and TAJA editor meet formally four times a year, and provide reports to members for each Annual General Meeting.
The Australian Network of Student Anthropologists (ANSA) was established in 2005 as an initiative of Australian postgraduate students. The ANSA Executive comprises a President, Secretary, and Communications Officer. ANSA operate independently of the AAS, however the President represents anthropology students and early career researchers (specifically postgraduates) on the AAS Executive Committee in a non-voting capacity.

AAS Institutional Representatives are asked to attend the annual meeting of the Institutional Representatives Forum, organise nominations for the annual AAS prizes for best PhD and Honours/Masters theses, and be a general point of contact for distributing news and information.
