TRUSTEE’S REPORT TO PCSO
By Dr. Robert Varner, AAO Trustee
or the past several years, the actions of the AAO
Board of Trustees, and the news items that have the
potential to affect AAO members and our profession
of orthodontics, have been reported through my Trustee
Report in the PCSO Bulletin. For this edition of the Trustee
Report, I would like to take a moment of personal privilege,
It seems like yesterday that I was sworn in at the 2005 AAO House of Delegates as the new trustee for PCSO. Dr. Pracht was president; Dr. Joondeph
was the trustee moving to president-elect; the location was San Francisco.
Life has come full circle: the year I am president of the AAO will end in
2015 in San Francisco. This will be my final report as your trustee, as I will
be moving to president-elect at the AAO Annual Session in Philadelphia.
Dr. Norm Nagel will be coming on board as your new PCSO trustee.
The strength of the AAO comes from each constituent society choosing its
trustee, each of whom serves seven years as trustee, one year as trustee
and secretary-treasurer, one year as president-elect, and finally as president. It gives strength and continuity to the board—and it all goes by so
fast. It has been a great honor to serve in this position for the PCSO. To be
able to meet and work with so many new friends and colleagues over these
years has been more precious than I would have believed possible. Thank
you to all the PCSO presidents, the board of directors, and the staff who
have served through my years as trustee and who have helped me along the
way. And a special thanks to my wife, Jacquetta, who has put up with all the
conference calls, e-mail and travel that goes with being a trustee. We could
not have done this job without such wonderful support from all of you.
These words may sound like a familiar sentiment, coming as they do from
each president who completes his time on the AAO Board of Trustees. Now
that I am experiencing it, it feels necessary and appropriate to express
my gratitude. So, I find myself saying the same things as has each trustee
before me. Thank you, PCSO, for providing this opportunity to serve you all
and this great profession we share.
