Artist members are selected by a group of their peers on the basis of their demonstrated abilities and experience. Membership currently numbers over 250 artists and associate members representing all corners of the United States. Foreign affiliates are also welcomed, with members hailing from a number of countries around the globe. Rouch has been an ASAA member since 2003.
