The broad range of AOP activities are organised and managed by the staff, under the guidance of the Chief Executive Officer and Board and they follow the priorities set out in the Association's Strategic Plan.
Groups meet at the beginning of a project to provide input, before implementation and after the project has been completed to review its success and effectiveness. Some may meet regularly, this will depend on the nature of the project or activity.
If you are interested in participating in a project, or have any ideas/suggestions, please contact the Chief Executive Officer.
