To be pedantic, the ASO != the NRO.

The ASO Advisory Council = the NRO Numbers Council, but the NRO is an
Association of Association (the 5 RIRs) acting in concert to protect
the unallocated numbering pool(s).

The ASO is ICANN's Addrsss Supporting Org, made up exclusively of Community
Members, elected by their respective RIR Community.  The ASO is not
the RIR staff, while the NRO is exclusivley RIR staff.
