The APOS/POSNZ combined ASM meeting this year will be held in Queenstown following the instructional course lecture series.   This year we are fortunate to have a group of seven visiting faculty from POSNA attending both events who will be giving a series of instructional course lectures covering a wide range of specialty topics in paediatric orthopaedics.  Check the website for bios and programme for updates.  As part of their focus on Asia-Pacific this year POSNA will be sponsoring colleagues from pacific nations to attend.

Friday (the last day day of the ICL) will be dedicated to instructional lectures from our visiting  POSNA speakers and the ASM will follow on Saturday combining instructional lectures with a range of local and international free papers. You may wish to come a day early and register for the last day of the ICL separately or attend the whole ICL programme from Wednesday.  The ASM will finish Sunday lunchtime.

Queenstown is an outdoors paradise and will be in the middle of it's ski season. Come early or stay on later, bring your family and enjoy great skiing, a visit to some of our world class central Otago wineries, jetboating or sightseeing around the alpine lakes.   Accommodation in Queenstown is tight this time of year so book early!

See you in Queenstown
