Committees are a critical component of ISAKOS and Committee Members are the lifeblood for the future.
The work of ISAKOS Committees is essential for advancing educational mission of ISAKOS and successfully delivering our programs.
Committees provide the structure for member involvement while developing future leaders for the Society.
Engaging as a member on ISAKOS committees or task forces provides you with an opportunity to pursue professional passions,
connect with colleagues and contribute to the advancement of ISAKOS and orthopaedic sports medicine in a meaningful way.
Our committees are distinct communities within ISAKOS which serve as important forums for the exchange of information and ideas.
The Committee Appointment process allows members to view all ISAKOS Committee openings and apply for positions of interest.
The following Committee Appointment and Tenure Policy is reviewed by the Committee on Committees and approved by the Board of Directors Biennially:

with the priority areas in the ISAKOS Strategic Plan. Each Committee has a specific mission and drives the direction of the Society through their charges and
