The BONES Society was founded in 1969 by a group of orthopaedic administrators who saw the value of networking. The organization was named "Best Orthopaedic Nationwide Evaluation Society" and became known as "BONES." Today, the organization has more than 1,400 members. The recent annual meeting featured 36 breakout sessions, plus featured speakers. For more information, contact Brenda Welborn, BONES Society manager, (847) 384-4242.
