Late Proposed BOC/BOS Advisory Opinions

The BOC and BOS may accept "late" proposed Advisory Opinions for consideration at the National Orthopaedic Leadership Conference (NOLC) or Fall Meeting upon the approval of two-thirds of both the Councilors and BOS members present and voting.

The BOC and BOS shall consider late proposed Advisory Opinions only if there is a true emergency and only if the BOC and BOS have sufficient background information to ensure that the BOC/BOS Resolutions Committee and ultimately all attendees can make an informed decision on the proposed BOC/BOS Advisory Opinion.

If the BOC or BOS does not accept a late proposed Advisory Opinion for consideration at one meeting, it shall be considered at the next BOC and BOS meeting.
