January 2002 AAOS Report
Candidates sought for Leadership Development Program
At its December meeting, the AAOS Board of Directors approved implementation of its new Leadership Fellows Program. The objective of the program is to identify and train future Academy volunteers for committee and leadership positions. The LFP is a yearlong program and requires a commitment to attend four training events and to maintain an ongoing dialogue with an assigned mentor. The program is open to AAOS Fellows who are age 45 years or younger. The first class of program participants is now being recruited. The applications and letters of recommendation should be submitted by Jan. 21, 2002 via e-mail, fax or express mail.
