Operations
The organization is governed and accountable to a Board of Directors comprised of a cross section of reputable individuals who are public servants, business leaders, elected officials, civic and community leaders from Mobile and Baldwin Counties . No member of the governing body receives any compensation from the organization, whether directly or indirectly. None of the members of the governing body are permitted by Board policy to have any financial interest in the organization.

Funding
ASI is funded through “user fees” and does not receive any funding from local, county or state sources. However, ASI may apply from time to time for government grants and other public sources to fund its community awareness programs. User fees are collected from each participant in the respective programs. The fees are based on similar programs that are presented in other like organizations. The Administrative Office of Courts (AOC) and the court system, however, set the fees for some programs. AOC, under the direction of the Alabama Supreme Court, sets Level I and Level II DUI school fees.

ASI is audited annually by a Certified Public Accountant (CPA).
