Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists Bulletin Fall 2013 - (Page 2)

EDITORIAL An editor’s Journey Dr. Nelson M y 20 years as editor of the PCSO Bulletin have been one of the best times of my life. Every quarter brings a rush of activity among our Editorial Board members, contributors and columnists. The reviewers who summarize various presentations are dedicated members who continue this work year after year. Managing Editor Anne Evers and I solicit articles; when drafts are submitted, we both do our first edit. Jill Nowak, PCSO Executive Director, completes her edit, which keeps us out of trouble. Each article is edited at least three times. The teamwork is intense in the last days before publication. The PCSO Bulletin is now published online only, but the work of production and publication is the same as when we provided a printed version. The cost to members has been moderated now that printing and mailing are unnecessary. The best thing about serving PCSO is the people. Our specialty is comprised of so many impressive people: orthodontists, orthodontic staff persons, and association staff persons. Working with them has been a load of fun for me, and very inspiring. I have been very lucky to participate in board meetings, committees, and the AAO House of Delegates. Over the years, various PCSO members have worked with the Communications Committee to bring to fruition Earl’s Pearls, Faculty Files, Jerry’s Gems, the Seasoned Practitioner’s Corner, NewsWire, case reports, podcasts, constituent reports, the NYM Forum, and the website. PCSO is a dynamic body that responds quickly to member input. Regular surveys have often affected the nature of member communications. You may have visited to read this issue of the PCSO Bulletin. The magazine can now be easily read on any device. Current readership for the online Bulletin is impressive and growing. Another convenient way to read the Bulletin is to use the link in the NewsWire email. Please check the accuracy of your email address in the AAO roster at to ensure you receive the NewsWire. We don’t know yet who the new editor-in-chief will be. Candidates have been reviewed by a task force, and finalists will be interviewed at the PCSO Annual Session Board meeting, when the choice will be made. I look forward to working with the new editor during the transition period. —Dr. Gerald Nelson, PCSO Bulletin Editor S 2 PCSO BuLLetin • FALL 2013
