Constituent Groups

Find your regional constituent group.

Constituents are regional organizations of the AAO located in the United States and Canada. While these organizations have their own dues, boards, and committees, they work along-side the AAO to advance the specialty. Constituents are active in governance of the AAO, electing members to serve on the Board of Trustees, House of Delegates and councils. As with the AAO, constituents are led by volunteer members.
