AORN is governed by an elected board of directors and by member appointed delegates who serve in AORN’s House of Delegates. These delegates oversee and vote to update and modify AORN’s Bylaws, which include criteria for membership, descriptions of elections, terms of office, and more. AORN’s Nominating Committee (NC) serves to shape AORN’s future leaders and the association’s annual ballot for national office.
