2016 Annual Meeting Was a Success!

Dr. HeithoffBy Steven J. Heithoff, DO, FAOAO
AOAO President

By all accounts the 2016 Annual Meeting in Washington, DC was a resounding success.  Attendance was the highest of any previous meeting, with 908 registrants.   The banquet sold out with over 500 participating.  Even the band at the banquet was a hit!  The dance floor was hopping all evening.

Kudos to Lee Vander Lugt, AOAO Executive Director, for having the vision to do something special for our 75th Anniversary meeting.   And thanks to Jim Ingram (Chair) and his 75th Anniversary Task Force, for their creativity and cool ideas for the celebration.

My first task as incoming President has been to arrange and appoint AOAO Committee Chairpersons and members.  Thank you to all who have volunteered to serve on our committees!

We are busy working on the 57th Postgraduate Seminar in Nashville, TN taking place April 28-30, 2017.   Please put it on your calendar and plan to attend.  Nashville is famous for its entertainment and it promises to be a lot of fun!  See you on Broadway Street!
