Board adopts new strategic plan

In 2005, the AAOS Board of Directors adopted a strategic plan to help guide decision making in the years 2005-2007. Because part of the ongoing process involves revisiting the strategic plan on a regular basis, this year the Board appointed a project team to revise and update the plan.

Norman Y. Otsuka, MD, chaired the project team that assembled the plan, which was developed by the Board during a series of meetings. At the February Board meeting, the Board prioritized the goals, which build upon the 2005-2007 Strategic Plan, and the AAOS mission of “serving the profession, championing the interests of patients, and advancing the highest quality musculoskeletal health.” During its May 2007 meeting, the Board adopted the new plan, which is reprinted here and which will be used during the next 3- to 5-year period.

New Governance Structure
To advance its mission, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) will have a sharply focused governance structure that will identify and respond to the evolving needs of current and prospective members, other health care providers, and patients.
