Chapter Delegate Information

The Chapter Delegate Selection System will open around the same time as the AORN Surgical Conference & Expo registration. Be sure to visit this site often to register your Chapter Delegates. 

Explanation of Chapter Delegate Limits

  • The number of Delegate seats for each Chapter is determined by a formula with the allotted Chapter delegate seats, the number of voting members in each Chapter, and the total number of Chapters as of June 30, 2015.

  • Each Chapter receives one guaranteed Delegate regardless of Chapter size.

  • Chapters may choose Delegates from another Chapter to fill spots, as long as their bylaws allow this process.
