AORN Advocacy Leadership

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. ~ Margaret Mead  

AORN Government Affairs and the National Legislative Committee (NLC) work with AORN state legislative coordinators to advance AORN's legislative priorities and public policy initiatives at the state and federal level. Government Affairs supports the National Legislative Committee and AORN state legislative coordinators and state councils with advocacy tools, resources and training. Use our Legislative Map to find your state legislative coordinator.

National Legislative Committee 

AORN's National Legislative Committee (NLC) serves as the expert and advocacy resource group to support AORN's legislative agenda and public policy initiatives. The NLC works in conjunction with AORN Government Affairs and is made up of a Chair, five regional coordinators, and an AORN Board liaison.
