July 1998 AAOS Report
Sept. 1 is deadline for Annual Meeting resolutions
Sept. 1 is the deadline to submit resolutions for the 1999 Annual Meeting in Anaheim, Calif. This year, for resolutions to be binding, they must be submitted to the Board of Councilors before being considered by the fellowship at the Annual Meeting. At its fall meeting, the councilors will hold an open hearing on all submitted resolutions, and will vote to recommend that the fellowship adopt, reject or modify the resolution when it is considered at the Annual Meeting. Late resolutions, which will be advisory to the Academy, will be accepted until Nov. 9-90 days before the Annual Meeting's business meeting. Academy members interested in receiving more information about writing and submitting a resolution may contact the Academy's office of general counsel at (800) 346-2267.
