New to the Conference?

If you're a new AAOE member or first-time Annual Conference attendee, then you've come to the right place!

No need to worry about your "newness" to the conference! There are events specifically planned to give you and other new attendees or new members (New-bees) plenty of opportunities to connect and learn. There is also a dedicated space called The Hive which is specifically created for New-bees! AAOE volunteers serve as hosts in this lounge-like area to answer questions you have about conference or about AAOE. We want to make sure your first AAOE Annual Conference experience is as fun and rewarding as possible! 

Take a peek at this short video by Valerie Patterson, Director of Operations at Campbell Clinic Orthopaedics, sharing her experience in your shoes as a new attendee recently.
