Let me first start by saying thank you to all of those who have renewed your membership. There are so many things going on with the PAOS these days and I am excited you have come back to join us as we move forward.
And finally, by popular demand, we have opened registration for our first annual west coast meeting in Phoenix in February 2019. Details for the meeting are on the main webpage. We have already booked almost 20% of the spots, so if you want to go to this meeting, you need to register NOW! I expect this meeting to sell out quickly, so please do not delay. Word of mouth spreads quickly! As I have said in previous blogs, our membership is growing rapidly. One of the main reasons for our rapid growth is that we offer quality cme geared toward advanced practice providers (APP's) in orthopedics. We are not trying to educate residents in ortho (AAOS). We are not trying to educate primary care providers in basic orthopedics (MSK Galaxy). Our goal is to provide quality continuing education to practicing APPs that you can use in your daily practice. If Arizona in February doesn't work for you, we will have two more opportunities in 2019: Charlotte in May and San Antonio in late August. And don't despair if the timing doesn't work. Each meeting will be recorded and the AV of each speaker and their slides will be offered for your online education. I am so happy to bring you all of these opportunities for quality education and I hope to see you at one of the meetings!
Disclaimer: If you do not register before the course is sold out, we cannot guarantee you a seat. This means unless you have paid your registration fee and have been given a seat at (any of) the meeting(s), you will not be recognized as attending the meeting and will not be granted cme. Further, we are not responsible if you book your travel/lodging without first making sure you are registered for the meeting. YOU NEED TO REGISTER TODAY AND GET YOUR SEAT BEFORE YOU BOOK YOUR TRAVEL!!! I am not making this up. We are selling out of our meetings and when the spots are sold, that is it. We can't squeeze you in (the fire marshals only allow us so many attendees). You must be proactive and book your spot asap! Please don't delay. You won't regret going to our conferences!
Thanks all and thanks again to those who have recently renewed!
