OREF named official AAOS fundraiser

At its meeting on Dec. 4, 2009, the AAOS Board of Directors approved an agreement that makes the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF) the official fundraising arm for AAOS orthopaedic education programs. The new agreement strengthens the existing working relationship between the two organizations and broadens the scope of OREF’s fundraising efforts for the Academy. OREF provides similar fundraising support for approximately 40 other orthopaedic organizations. Full details will be in the January issue of AAOS Now; see the initial announcement in the “Across the President’s Desk” column.
