Assembly of Trustees
The Assembly of AO Trustees is responsible for approving the AO’s scientific and clinical mission, important elections, and modifying the AO Foundation Charter and Bylaws. It communicates AO values to national institutions and other AO surgeons, and gathers feedback on specific regional needs.
Since each Trustee serves for a limited number of years, the composition of the Assembly of Trustees is subject to continuous renewal.
