DescriptionThe General committee was responsible for the overall welfare of the association, overseeing every aspect of the organization's administration and responsibility for the ultimate say and control of issues brought up by the other committees. Minutes from the early years refer to formation of the AAA such as who composed the association, the clubs involved, and the purpose for which it was established.

The volumes record the election of chairman and officers, the discussion of finances and rules for competition as well as including reports received from other committees. As a complete series the minutes document the entire development of the association throughout the years, for example the minutes for 5 February 5 1944 record that as part of the post-war plan the association established a number of committees including the Finance and General Purposes, Championships, Development and Publications committees.
