To the Officers, Trustees, Section Chairs and the PFA Fellowship, I hope you all had a happy, healthy, and hopeful Holiday Season.
The past 2010 year was a good one for the Academy thanks to the guidance of our immediate Past President Steve Hedlund, President Hubert Ouvrard, President-Elect Joseph Harris, our new Vice President Ernesto Acuña, and of course the able Trustees who have worked together so well to ensure that the continuing success of PFA will go on to celebrate not only our 75th Anniversary next year, but many, many more years to come.
The gratitude given to the Section Chairs for all of their hard work could never be enough as they are directly responsible for the never ending task of recruiting new Fellows. It is through their efforts that the Academy continues to grow and prosper.....and to elevate the prestige we hold on an International level.
Thanks must also be given to our Editor and Web-Manager, Mark Stanley for bringing us into the future with new ways to make us “modern” and able to communicate with each other easily and quickly. The new program for paying dues by credit card online will hopefully make this task much easier and less time-consuming for the Fellows who wish take advantage of this method. To our Fellows who prefer to send their check....be assured we will keep that method also. It’s sometimes hard to change, but we always manage to adapt and rise to any occasion!
I am so Thankful to be a small part of this team and my only wish is that we will continue to carry on the work started by others so long ago and to serve, each to the best of our ability, to make sure those who follow us will be able to celebrate the 100th year Anniversary of the Pierre Fauchard Academy.
Wishing each and every one of you, many Blessings and the Happiest New Year. As we approach this new year and the start of our celebrations for our 75th year, I hope you will take some time to reflect on your own blessings and be thankful for each one.
Looking forward to being with you all this year....be well and happy!
