The BJI consistently offers a membership retreat, typically on years opposite our National Canadian Bone and Joint Conference.  The intent of this retreat is to share information about local programs & success to encourage collaboration, advance skills and knowledge, and create opportunities to shape future strategic effort that will benefit the Institute as a whole.
