AOR Membership Approves Bylaw Revisions

4 Jan 2022

On December 14th, the AOR Membership voted to approve proposed revisions to our bylaws. The bylaws were previously amended in 2017.

The purpose for these changes has been our desire to bring Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) to the forefront of our organization, increase the board’s flexibility to adapt in rapidly changing times, create more opportunities for crossing training and collaboration, and to clarify board procedures such as decision-making.
