About Us



Committees play a vital role in the Society’s work to build a strong specialty and meet the evolving needs of our members. The AOFAS relies upon its membership to carry out the valuable work of its committees and appreciates the service of its committee volunteers.

Who May Serve

Active Members and Candidate Members are eligible to serve on all committees. International Members are eligible to serve on most committees. Surgeon in Training Members may serve as ex-officio committee members on one committee. Only Active Members may chair committees.

AOFAS members may serve on two general committees as members-at-large. There are term lengths for membership and leadership positions. Members are asked to sign an AOFAS Committee Commitment Form as part of their acceptance.
