AAO House of Delegates T his year the HOD met at the AAO Annual Session in Honolulu. Delegates voted in a couple of important resolutions. First, consultants will be hired to review the government style of the AAO, looking at ways to improve efficiency and representation of members, and to control cost. The resolution is likely to bring knowledge of association experts to suggest improvements that may be major, such as the possibility of reducing the number of constituent societies, and changing the nature of the House of Delegates. The second issue of note was approving an AAO survey of recent graduates from orthodontic programs, to learn what kind of practice experiences they have had. These two resolutions had a price tag, and the HOD voted to instruct the Trustees to adjust expenses so that the dues would not be increased. The Board of Trustees came back to say they would forgo a scheduled increase in Trustee honorariums in order to balance the budget. This was hard for the HOD members to accept, as the work-flow requirements on the Trustees is extraordinary. So … the HOD then voted to increase dues by $5.00 to pay for the extra programs without penalizing the Trustees. — Gerald Nelson, DDS, PCSO Bulletin Editor S PCSO BuLLETIN • SuMMER 2012
