Are you interested in a position of leadership in the perioperative profession? AORN has an elected 12-member board of directors and an elected five-member Nominating and Leadership Development Committee (NLDC). These groups determine the direction of AORN in support of the role of perioperative nurses. The NLDC supports the vision of the association by identifying future leaders and supporting their professional development. They also solicit members to nominate others or nominate themselves. There is no limit to the number of potential candidates names you may submit. Nominations are accepted between March 1 and May 1 for elections at the following year’s Congress.
If leadership on a national level is in your future, contact the NLDC to help identify your skills and develop your professional expertise. The NLDC reviews qualifications and provides resources for emerging leaders who want to become involved in AORN.
Volunteering for leadership positions within AORN, including committees, task forces, and Specialty Assembly Governing Council positions, is an important part of members becoming actively involved in AORN.
