Due to COVID-19 and current restrictions, this year’s WFH Musculoskeletal Committee AGM will be held virtually on Friday, May 7, 2021 at 11:30 a.m. EDT. The MSK AGM is open to anyone who has registered to attend the 2021 International MSK Congress.

Note: Voting in the MSK Committee officer elections is restricted to members of the MSK Committee. See 'Voting eligibility' below.

The AGM provides participants with an opportunity to hear what the MSK Committee has achieved in the last year and what the MSK strategy and objectives are for the coming year.

Join us on May 7 to:

  • Meet our MSK Executive Committee
  • Meet our newly elected in-coming Junior Vice-Chair and Member-at-Large
  • Reflect on our 2020-2021 accomplishments through an annual report delivered by our Chair, Gianluigi Pasta, MD and our Senior Vice-Chair, Cesar Haddad, PT
  • Welcome our new members
  • Celebrate our award winners, to be announced live during the AGM:

One week prior to the AGM, all Executive Committee reports will be available online for members to review. Committee nominations are available below.

In order to vote during the elections, you must be a member of the MSK committee.

Members of the MSK committee must be members in good standing of the WFH and have attended at least one MSK business meeting in the past, held either at the MSK Congress or the WFH World Congress.

To be considered a member in good standing of the WFH, you must either:

  1. Be registered to receive the WFH Global Community newsletter or
  2. Be a current paid member, individual or group, of the WFH

Of note: New members may not vote at the meeting in which they are inducted into the MSK committee (their first meeting). New members will be eligible to vote at subsequent MSK meetings.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the MSK Committee, please contact us at [email protected].

We are using Election Buddy, an online election system, to tabulate the votes for the officer elections. On the day before the AGM, May 6, 2021, MSK Committee members attending the virtual MSK Congress will receive an email from the WFH with a unique assigned access key which can only be used to vote in the 2021 elections. Voting will be secure and anonymous.

Members will have from May 6, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. EDT until May 7, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. EDT to complete their vote and submit their ballot.

The results of the vote will be announced at the 2021 MSK Annual General Meeting (AGM).
