Hope that you all had good Holidays over the winter. Spring is in full bloom and we are getting ready for the next Convention.
The 35th Annual Convention of AOA will be held in Phoenix, Arizona. from Aug. 10 th with scheduled departure on Aug. the 13th, 2017. The Hotel rates are very favorable. I thank all those who have made reservations for the Hotel and registered for the convention. For those who have not, please do so prior to cut off dates.
Dr. Rajeev Agarwal is the chairman of the Convention. The organizing committee has put together an excellent program and I can assure you that all age groups will enjoy it. The information has been put on the AOA website and the full brochure will follow.
This year, we celebrate the 50th batch anniversary for the Class of 1967. We expect an excellent turnout.
The discussions regarding Keswani Memorial lecture awardee, Chief Guest/ Guest of honor etc are still ongoing. Details will follow.
We’d like to have greater participation of our junior colleagues. Please share this info. for those who are not our E mail list.
This year, we plan to provide 5-10 travel fellowships. Dr. Aditya Bardia has been working on this issue as he has for past several years. I urge our senior colleagues to contribute to this endeavor.
Web site has been redesigned and is more user friendly. Dr. Munish Sharma has been working hard with the Exec. Committee and local organizing committee towards this goal.
Please bring in your critique, comments and suggestions or better yet, send it to me in advance so that we can discuss at the General body meeting on Saturday.
So my friends, We look forward to seeing you in Arizona. I have been told that it’s very hot at that time but it’s ” Dry Heat ” and that we will be able to tolerate it fine.
As always, Please contact any of us in the Exec. Committee . We are here to serve you.
