AORN Governance

AORN is governed by an elected 12-member Board of Directors whose qualifications for office are determined by the Nominating Committee of 5 members. Elections are annual and results are announced at AORN Global Surgical Conference & Expo.

The AORN Board of Directors supports our mission to define and advocate for patient and staff safety by maintaining good financial stewardship, setting the strategic direction of the Association, and providing and establishing policies and goals for the profession.

The AORN Nominating Committee evaluates potential candidates for all elected positions and supports members throughout their candidacy and election process.
