A Message From The President

Dear Members of the COS:

Warm wishes from the Southeast. Despite the chilling economic news, Spring is in the air and the world continues despite the turmoil.Dabney Y. Hoffamann, MD

Your Board met at the AAOS meeting in Las Vegas and had a productive session. It was decided to add a “Resident Member” category to the membership. This is an effort to give them an early introduction to our unique Society and to hopefully maintain their interest after they enter practice. (Who else does live patient presentations?) It was also decided that any group practice which has four or more COS members would have those members eligible for a 10% discount on those members dues. The size of the practice does not matter. The above are efforts to continue to grow the Society with new members. I encourage you all to look around you, see a potential new member and have them contact us either by email or by phone 804-565-6366.

A committee has also volunteered to spearhead our 100th Anniversary Meeting, which will be held in Chicago, at the Palmer House Hilton Hotel, the site of our first meeting in 1912.

Finally, I encourage you all to make plans to attend our 97th Annual Meeting at Point Clear, Alabama to be held September 10th  through 12th, 2009. Point Clear Resort and Spa is the “Grand Dame” of the Gulf Coast. Golfing and tennis are spectacular, as is the setting. Water sports abound and the nearby towns of Fairhope and Foley offer unique shopping experiences, and fun exploration. It is an excellent destination for CME’s or leisure!

Have a safe Spring and Summer. Leslie and I look forward to seeing you in the fall at the meeting!

Yours truly,

Dabney Y. Hofammann, MD
