The AO CMF International Board is responsible for overseeing and coordinating the strategy, and all the functions and activities, of the AO CMF Clinical Division globally.

On a regional level, the five Regional Boards (Asia Pacific, Europe and Southern Africa, Middle East and Northern Africa, Latin America, and North America) are responsible for planning the full range of activities in the field of education. Moreover, they provide regional input to the respective commissions for community development and research.

The three AO CMF Commissions are responsible for establishing standards, coordinating and leveraging ideas, and ensuring best practice transfer between the regions in the fields of research and development, community development, and the AO Technical Commission. The boards and commissions are composed of elected representatives and comply with the AO Foundation’s Code of Ethics and Shared Values.
