Hawaii PFA Trustees Meeting
Posted November 16, 2009
The annual meeting, was held in conjunction with the meeting of the American Dental Association in Honolulu in early October 2009. It brought together PFA Fellows from around the globe, both to attend the ADA meeting and to catch up with other members of the Academy. It provided the first real opportunity as a meeting of the Academy to reflect on the passing of former Secretary- General Dr Richard Kozal who passed away in March 2009. He has left a vast legacy and our thoughts were with the extended Kozal family and in particular, his wife Mrs Judith Kozal. The Board of Trustees met over 3 days and canvassed a wide range of agenda topics as well as discussing the interaction between the Academy and its Foundation. It provided the opportunity to meet and welcome the new PFA Foundation director, Laura Fleming Doyle. Laura will be a welcome addition to the PFA family and we wish her well in her new role. The Awards luncheon was well attended with out-going International President Dr Chuck Eller presiding. A wide range of PFA awards were conferred on a variety of worthy beneficiaries who have enriched our profession. Congratulations to each of you! Dr Joseph Harris (USA) was elected into the position of Vice-President and we know Joe will be a welcome addition to the new management team. After a busy three days, the leadership baton passed to Dr Steve Hedlund from Iowa. Steve will be bring a wealth of experience and we wish him every success in this important job for the Academy. The Board of Trustees will again meet in Orlando, Florida in October 2010. I wish you all well.
