Founded in 1969, ASCP is a 501(c)(6) non-profit organization based in Alexandria, Virginia. The ASCP Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization; its purpose is to carry out the charitable – including scientific, literary, and educational – purposes of ASCP.

The ASCP Bylaws provide for 13 members on the Board of Directors: 4 officers (president, chairman of the board, president-elect, and secretary-treasurer) and 9 additional directors (1 elected from each of ASCP’s 8 regions listed below, and 1 at-large director). In addition, the Executive Director/CEO serves as an ex officio, non-voting member of the Board. Each officer serves a one-year term. Each officer must have been a director-member of the Board for a minimum of one 3-year term before running for an officer position. Each director serves a 3-year term and elections are staggered, such that 3 director positions are elected annually. Each director may be re-elected to no more than two consecutive terms as director. Directors are strongly encouraged to run for an officer position, since being a director is a prerequisite for being an officer.
The Council of Presidents consists of all past and present presidential officers of ASCP and serves in an advisory capacity to the Board of Directors and the Society. The Immediate Past Chair of the Board of Directors serves as the Chair of the Council of Presidents.
