ATL's national officers
ATL currently has nine national officers, elected by members. It is the national officers of ATL, along with the general secretary and her representatives, that take part in talks with government representatives and employers, on employment and education issues affecting all of ATL's members.
From September 2014, the makeup of the officer group will change. It will comprise the:
- immediate past president
- treasurer and member governance officer
- policy officer
- AMiE president.
These are listed together with the remit under Appendix F of the rules and constitution.
Once elected, the vice-president follows a path through the ranks, over a three-year period. In their second year they become president, in their third immediate past president. In September 2014 the current junior vice-president will assume the office of vice-president and therefore there will be no election for this position this year.
