The Premier PFA Event of the Year
The ultimate Pierre Fauchard Academy experience happened this past September 29-31 in San Francisco during the 148th Annual ADA Session. We were at the San Francisco Marriott, as usual.
The festivities started on Friday, 29 September with the Section Chair Caucus at 8 A.M. in the Sierra Room C, followed by the Academy Annual Board Meeting at 10 A.M. in the Sierra Room B. At noon there was working lunch (PFA-sponsored) with the PFA Board, the Section Chairs, and any PFA member who wished to attend the meetings. At 1:30 P.M. there was an Executive Session (closed) in Sierra Room B. Afterward, at about 2:30 P.M., the Academy Board Meeting reconvened until 5 P.M.
Saturday, 30 September was the highlight day of the PFA events. The Foundation Board Meeting commenced at 7:30 A.M. and ran until 11:30 A.M. in the Sierra Room C. The Board then took a break for the year's top function, the Annual PFA International Awards Banquet (cost) in the Nob Hill Room. This was an opportunity to renew friendships, make new contacts, honor some of the world's leading dental professionals, and welcome the newly elected PFA International Officers for 2007- 2008.
After the luncheon, the Foundation Board Meeting reconvened after the luncheon at 2:30 P.M. until 5 P.M.
