The Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors (PSATS) has been serving townships of the second class since 1921, when Act 189 created the Association to represent the interests of townships and authorized townships to join. Today, there are 1,455 member townships in the commonwealth, representing some 10,000 elected township officials. The Association represents its members before the state and federal legislative bodies strictly on a nonpartisan basis.
