IMPORTANT NOTICE to Active Members:

As hard as we try to maintain the same membership dues over the years, there comes a time when that is no longer feasible, due to the economy, and, that time is now. The new annual dues for 2015 are $150, as reflected on the IAOS website when you log on (IAOS.net/join-iaos) to renew your membership. Thank you for your support and understanding as we strive to celebrate our rich Irish heritage while expanding orthopaedic knowledge, fostering goodwill and cooperation, and bettering the lives of those we reach.

Do you have important information you'd like to share with your fellow IAOS members? Please let us know so we can post the information on our IAOS website.
