The values on which AOII was founded help lead us in the decisions we make and the behaviors we exhibit in our daily lives. We are inspired to promote the values of simplicity, integrity, circumspection, tolerance, generosity, personal dignity, and love. Our lives are to be living symbols of these values that we hold in common. They enable us to go with character and confidence into the world around us, confidently knowing AOII is ours, offering friendships and opportunities throughout our lifetime.
There are three key components that AOII uses to communicate our purpose: The Object of the Fraternity, our Mission Statement, and AOII's Vision Statement. Although each individually unique, the three components work together to guide and direct our ever-expanding membership and leaders.
