The Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada,  March 24—28, 2015.  The GOS reception is scheduled for Thursday 26th March, 6:00-8:00 PM at the centrally located Wynn Hotel Casino. The specific room/salon has yet to be assigned but should be included in the official program of the Academy. The event is being sponsored by the US Girdlestone Contingent with support from the GOS.  Seth Greenwald has once again been in charge of local arrangements and we anticipate a very enjoyable and well attended event as per last year.  We invite you and your guests to join your colleagues for drinks and refreshments.  We look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas!

Professor Josep Trueta and his colleagues founded this society in 1950. Membership is open to all those who have spent a significant part of their training in orthopaedics in Oxford. There is an annual three day scientific conference. At its founding the following paragraph was written which reflects the Society's 'mission statement', as it would now be defined:

'As the years go by most of us feel an increasing admiration and gratitude to those who are responsible for our upbringing and we feel an increasing appreciation for your friendship and understanding among people. Some of the men that owe their orthopaedic training to the school built by Girdlestone and who feel that it provided for them not only a school but in the intellectual sense a family as well, feel the need for an organisation that will keep alive the spirit of this family" [G.Mineiro 1958].
