Dear IAOS Member:

Happy New Year! May 2014 be a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year for each and every one of you. It gives me great pleasure to announce that DT Management Services, LLC (DTMS) has assumed the management responsibilities for the Irish American Orthopaedic Society.

DTMS is located in Towson, Maryland and manages multiple associations such as Western Orthopaedic Association, Southern Orthopaedic Association, Eastern Orthopaedic Association, the Society of Military Orthopaedic Association, Maryland Orthopaedic Association, Washington DC Orthopaedic Society, and the Walter Reed Bethesda Orthopaedic Alumni Association. DTMS has a management team uniquely qualified to
administer the day-to-day business for IAOS.

Not only will IAOS greatly benefit from DTMS’s management skills and continuous oversight in the running of our association, they have an established track record for developing exciting member benefits and opportunities for their orthopaedic members.

In order for DTMS to help serve you better, we ask that you please fill out the attached questionnaire to update your membership information and either mail, fax, or scan and email the completed form back to DTMS (information at bottom of page). This information will be used to provide you with future details and information regarding the IAOS.

We look forward to this partnership with DTMS and know they will help us in maintaining the rich heritage of the IAOS of which we are so proud.

We value your membership and would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
