CONYM Council Rep
NESO Board Member
The Council on New and Younger Members represents AAO members who are in the first 10 years of their orthodontic careers. This 8-person AAO Council has one representative from each region, I represent NESO. To have the greatest impact on AAO policy and decision-making, these 8 CONYM members are assigned to other councils throughout the AAO, I serve on the Council on Governmental Affairs to provide NYM perspective. At the May 2020 House of Delegates meeting, CONYM proposed a resolution that was passed to provide CONYM members serving on other councils (such as COGA) to have a vote on those councils. This gives NYMs a greater voice within the AAO, and shows commitment from the House of Delegates to make NYM issues a priority!
