* A Note about Using Designations

AOA members who have yet to earn an AOA AM or AOA CM designation are not permitted to use the acronym "AOA" or "Member of AOA" after their name as to do so would be misleading. However, designated as well as non-designated Members can refer to themselves as "Member of AOA" in their professional profile, CV or résumé.
