The Classical Association

Governance

The Association was founded in 1903 for the advancement of education by the promotion, development and maintenance of classical studies and to increase public awareness of the contribution and importance of classics to education and public life.  The Association welcomes members from all backgrounds and there are no prerequisites to membership.

The Association aims to generate income, primarily by means of subscriptions and publications sales, to finance four main areas of activity in furtherance of its objects.

All our activities are overseen by Council, our board of trustees. Where necessary, smaller committees deal with specific areas of business which require additional expertise, such as publishing or finance. Details of all CA boards and committees are given below.
