Aspen Institute Italia is a community made up of Sustaining Members, Ordinary Members, Friends of Aspen, Aspen Junior Fellows, Aspen University Fellows, Aspen Junior Fellows Alumni, Italian Talents Abroad, and Aspen Corporate Initiative. But it is also open to anyone in Italy or abroad eager to contribute ideas and proposals consistent with the Institute’s program.
Aspen Institute Italia’s governing bodies are the Executive Committee, the General Council, the Chairman, the Vice Chairmen, the Secretary General and the Board of Auditors. The General Council, which comprises an equal number of Sustaining Members and representatives from amongst the Ordinary Members, meets to deliberate at least once a year. Its duties include electing the Chairman, the Vice Chairmen and the Executive Committee members.
The duties of the Executive Committee – a much smaller group also made up of an equal number of Sustaining Members and representatives from amongst the Ordinary Members – include submitting the final budget and the annual calendar of activities to the General Council for its approval and subsequently overseeing that calendar’s implementation.
