Over the 25 years of existence, many fine relationships have been formed and the exchange of business and social communications have been inestimable value to the participants and their companies. It can truly be said that the AART includes in its membership the elite in the field of training through apprenticeship. AART has set standards that have placed apprenticeship on a plane not heretofore assigned to this form of training.
The constitution has been revised three times to keep pace with the times, principally as follows:
1. Membership requirements were broadened to include Technical and Craft training as well as indentured programs.
2. Membership in AART belongs to the company–not to an individual. Member companies must have a representative at each meeting. Membership is forfeited for missing three years of Round Table.
3. Not more than two representatives from each company after 1960.
4. Member companies should serve as hosts at acceptable times, but are not expected to pay any expense of the meeting.
We believe that the AART has contributed a great deal to national policies and attitudes in training. In 1962, on the occasion of its 25th anniversary, The Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training awarded a Certificate of Appreciation to the AART.
