Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists Bulletin Fall 2013 - (Page 2)
An editor’s Journey
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

Another convenient way to read the Bulletin is to

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.
