June 2002 AAOS Report
AAOS volunteer opportunities now listed online
A new online database of AAOS volunteer opportunities is now available on the AAOS Web site, www.aaos.org. Members are encouraged to apply for a position on a committee most suitable to their competency. Just click on "Member Services,"> then look for "Volunteer Vacancy Announcement, Application and Selection System." Once in the database, members can access a list of all committee openings, view detailed committee charges and review information about the qualifications for each committee opening, along with details of the responsibilities and length of term for that vacancy. In order to be considered for a committee assignment, please follow the simple procedure noted on the Web site. The current application deadline for 2003 committee vacancies is July 1, 2002. Those appointed should be notified on or about Sept. 30, 2002. Most new committee appoints become effective in February 2003, at the time of the AAOS Annual Meeting.
