The Management Committee recently completed a very successful meeting in Oklahoma City. The Committee joined the festivities along with the ODA in their celebration of 100 years of service to the dental profession. It was to say the least a very memorable event, for the Academy's leadership to be included in honoring the ODA. Several administrative matters were reviewed and completed. One significant item was the report of the Budget & Finance Committee. The Academy continues to improve its financial structure. The Academy's financial position continues to remain sound. The Constitution & Bylaws had several of the approved Board's recommended changes worked into a new updated version that will have the final review at the Board Meeting in San Francisco.
The Academy's senior student award program continues to be very successful with the dental school world wide. The Foundation's annual scholarship program has been equally successful.
Changes have been made to the Academy's E-mail and Leadership directories if you have a recent change in address, please send the new information to the Central Office.
The Annual Session of the ADA will be in San Francisco in September. The San Francisco Marriott will be the Headquarters for the ADA delegates and the Academy's Board of Trustee and Officers. The Academy's and Foundation of the Academy will hold its meeting and social functions in the Headquarters hotel.
