Assembly of Trustees

Assembly of Trustees 

The Assembly of Trustees is the "AO parliament", consisting of 132  leading surgeons from around the world and 28 Honorary Members.

The Assembly of Trustees is responsible for the approval of the scientific and clinical mission of the AO Foundation, important elections and the modification of the AO Foundation Charter and Bylaws. They transmit AO information to national institutions and other AO surgeons and bring feedback regarding the specific needs of their region.

Since each Trustee serves for a limited number of years, constant rejuvenation of the Assembly is guaranteed.​​
