The House of Delegates (HOD) will meet on May 4, 2018 and May 7, 2018 at the Washington, D.C. Marriott Marquis, concurrent with the AAO Annual Session.

While voting and speaking privileges are limited to delegates, alternates and certain AAO leaders, members may observe the proceedings. Delegates will discuss, revise and vote on resolutions impacting the future of the AAO during 2018-19 and beyond.

Proposed resolutions will be accessible to all members in the HOD Book of Reports, which will be live at on or before April 20. The site will feature the Book of Reports in its traditional online format as a well as a new tool to navigate resolutions and comment on them. Online comments will be treated as testimony for Reference Committee consideration.

Delegates and alternates – and all members – are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the online comment tool’s functionality. It is anticipated that it will become the single resource for reviewing and commenting on resolutions in 2019.
