***DEADLINE: JULY 31, 2007***

The Academy Annual Meeting provides outstanding clinical and
professional education sessions and is the ideal setting for you to
share your expertise with O&P practitioners and industry professionals
while earning unparalleled recognition from your peers.

Mark your calendar for next year's Academy Annual Meeting, which will be
held at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando, February 27 - March 1,

Choose from a variety of presentation opportunities:

Thranhardt Lecture Series: All abstracts must be original work,
attributable to the author. Based upon the submitted abstracts, not more
than four presentations will be chosen as potential recipients of the
Thranhardt Lecture Series honorarium. These presentations will be
delivered at the Annual Meeting. The two best presentations will be
determined based upon content, delivery, clinical, and scientific
relevance of the presentation. Two $500 honoraria will be awarded to the
selected presentations.

Free Papers: Free Paper submissions are intended to offer solutions to
common problems, patient and practice management techniques, innovative
uses of technology, or current research findings. The content and/or
presentation of the information will promote quality or improvements in
orthotic or prosthetic care, and will not promote a specific proprietary
business or commercial interest. Content for this activity, including
any presentation of therapeutic options, should be unbiased and, as much
as possible, based on evidence.

Poster Presentations: Provide a forum for a one-to-one, in-depth
discussion using narrative and visual material to display and
communicate the objectives, methods, results, and conclusions of a
specific research study or illustrate a piece of equipment, technique,
program, etc.
