ASM 2020

Richard Page 
Scientific Secretary, AOA
It is a pleasure to welcome colleagues and guests to the 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting in Sydney and online as a virtual meeting.

This will be the 80th meeting of the Australian Orthopaedic Association, with the theme of ‘Standing Tall and Stepping Forward’, in a hybrid format to allow us to share content and knowledge from regions around Australia.

The scientific programme will be condensed to give a snapshot of plenaries, invited national and international guest presentations, as well as key AOA reports including from the AOANJRR.

We will benefit from a live international conversation with Presidential speakers sharing their own experiences with the challenges of SARS-COVID-19.

I would like to acknowledge the support and assistance from Alison Fallon, Mark Stevens, the conference team, State Branches and the AOA community for their engagement and support in overcoming the challenges we have faced this year to bring you this unique meeting experience.

Kind regards

Richard Page
Scientific Secretary, AOA
