COA Committee Restructuring

In 2012 the members of the COA were asked to identify the priorities that they wanted to see addressed by the COA leadership. That Spring, then COA President Dr. Emil Schemitsch convened a two-day strategic planning meeting to lay the foundations for today's committee structure.

This planning meeting resulted in the formation of these strategic priorities and a reaffirmation of the COA Mission.

The long and involved process to restructure the COA committees to better serve our members came to a successful vote in June at the Annual Meeting in Winnipeg.

COA Mission
The COA will serve the profession and promote excellence in orthopaedic and musculoskeletal health for Canadians.
