July 1999 AAOS Report
Sept. 1 is deadline for Annual Meeting resolutions
Sept. 1 is the deadline to submit resolutions for the 2000 Annual Meeting in Orlando, Fla. 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 American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (Academy) or the Association, will be accepted until Dec. 20 - 90 days before the Annual Meeting's business meeting. Fellows interested in receiving more information about writing and submitting a resolution can contact Richard N. Peterson, AAOS, office of general counsel, (800) 346-2267 or by e-mail, email@example.com.
