ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — Representatives from the American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists look forward to attending the annual meeting of the New Jersey chapter of the group, both because it has been the organization’s largest chapter meeting and to seek input from attendees about “what they want” from their membership, according to JoAnne Kanas, CPO, DPT.
“The academy is trying to solicit information from their membership,” Kanas, a member of the AAOP board of directors and corporate director for orthotics and prosthetics at Shriners Hospital for Children, said. “Why do they want to be members? What do they want from their academy membership? What do they like about it? Where do they see as the needs? We are certainly trying to promote and support the profession and the professionals in the industry, so we need to get feedback from them as to what direction we need to go.”
