The Academy's home page in October includes many new items this month.
1999 Annual Meeting online registration. Starting Oct. 7, Academy members can access the home page at www.aaos.org in the "1999 Annual Meeting" section to register online. This year, online registration is open to allied health professionals, as well as to Academy fellows, candidate, resident, international affiliate, associate and honorary members.
Individuals can register online for instructional courses and Specialty Day events, make lodging reservations by linking to International Travel Service's (ITS) web site (individuals first must register for the Annual Meeting on the Academy's home page) and view a site map that includes a hotel's location in relation to the Anaheim Convention Center. There also will be links to the web sites of airline companies.
Credit card registration via the home page will offer a faster response time. Last year, individuals received confirmation within 48 hours. Registrants can use "Make Your Own Schedule" online, and enter meetings, courses and other events they would like to attend.
Online ordering is available for the Academy's Educational Resources Catalog in the "Educational Resources Catalog" section of the home page. Orders are transmitted directly to customer service which will confirm receipt within 24 hours.
