AORecon has set up its governance with a Steering Board, an Education Forum and a project team.

The Steering Board consists of AO experts, which in turn nominated the AORecon Education Forum consisting of key opinion leaders within the fields of joint preservation and replacement. The project team includes AO employees who support and manage the project.

Meet the EDUCATION FORUM, or contact the PROJECT TEAM.
