WHAT DOES THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS DO?
A Board of Directors creates policy, develops high-level strategy, and handles accountability for the organization. AAO’s Board is considered an activist board: In addition to being a member in good standing, each Director must attend at least 50% of our monthly Board Meetings, participate on at least one committee, and attend train-related activities (if any) in their geographic area.
