Friends and colleagues, join me at the AOAO 2016 Annual Meeting!
This year’s meeting will be held at the newly finished Marriott Washington Marquis Hotel located in the heart of Washington, DC. Not only is this elegant hotel world class, it is just .6 miles from the White House and very close to many of our Capital’s most treasured museums and monuments.
The highlight of the meeting is the celebration of our 75th Anniversary! We have been working hard to make this a special event. Definitely plan to join us for the Gala Banquet and Dancing to be held Friday, October 14.
There will be many Anniversary related activities at this meeting. Prior to the Gala there will be a cocktail reception with a Silent Auction. We also have anniversary logo items for sale at the AOAO E-Store (best accessed through Google Chrome, Firefox and Explorer). Go there to buy some fun AOAO swag! Proceeds from these will benefit the AOAO Foundation. In addition, we will honor Past Presidents, have past history trivia questions, and provide free anniversary logo items to conference participants.
The CME Committee has once again put together an excellent series of scientific lectures I am confident you will find stimulating and educational. To round out the program, don’t miss our Keynote Speaker, Dr. Manny Alvarez on Thursday, October 13 from 11:00 a.m. – noon.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn a few cool things about Orthopedics, re-connect with your old friends, and spend some time seeing the amazing cultural and historic sites only Washington, DC can offer.
Book your room early and see you in DC!
Steven J. Heithoff, DO,FAOAO
