Orthopaedic Specialty Societies

The Society Management Services Department was established in 1985 by the AAOS to strengthen the link between the specialty societies and the AAOS by improving communication between the specialty societies and the Academy.

Rapid, Thorough, Effective

It is the department's mission to improve communication among the specialty societies and with the AAOS on issues of mutual concern and interest. We seek to provide cost effective management, timely educational information, and extensive communication services to orthopaedic specialty societies.
