The Scaffold & Access Industry Association currently is comprised of 11 active councils. Each council represents a particular niche of the scaffolding and access industry. The councils are responsible for the development and implementation of affairs consistent with the product and/or service applicable to each council. Councils are tasked with oversight of regulatory/ jurisdictional safety concerns and specific industry issues relative to each established council. 

Councils meet face to face twice a year; in the winter for a working meeting to plan for the year, and they sponsor a presentation at the SAIA annual conference and exposition in July.  Councils are led by a chair chosen by the President and serve two year terms.  Anyone is welcome to join a council meeting, and members may work on projects for the council.
