- advocating for funding, capacity building and policy development;

This will be achieved through being an organisation committed to:

AEA is governed by a seven member council elected from the membership. Five members of Council form the Executive, namely the President, two Vice-Presidents, Treasurer and Honorary Secretary. At least one member of Council must be based in New Zealand.
Other roles within council include the coordination of local chapters, and management of the website. The council co-opts a member to coordinate student matters.
