AORN’s network of more than 300 chapters provides members with a valuable local connection to peers. Chapters help members achieve professional and personal growth, inspire students interested in the perioperative field, promote the value of AORN membership, and seek to increase public awareness. Through the Chapter Excellence Awards program, AORN has the opportunity to recognize these valuable contributions at the chapter level annually at the annual Surgical Conference & Expo.

Information for the 2015 award application will be available in June 2014. At that time, the application page will provide further information including:

  • History of the chapter awards
  • Selection process
  • Recipient recognition 

Contact the Awards Committee staff liaison if you have any questions regarding the awards process.
