GOVERNANCE

The Association of Ohio Recyclers is governed by a code of regulations. The most recent revision of the code was voted upon at the 2017 Membership Meeting, December 17, 2017. 

The goal of AOR's Strategic Plan is to assist the Association of Ohio Recyclers (AOR) in identifying the  strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats the organization faces, and to provide the  recommended steps needed to address them.
