executive director ' s report A MAGICAL, SPOOKY, INTERNATIONAL, EDUCATIONAL TIME IN ANAHEIM A few years ago, as Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists (PCSO) board members were discussing the perfect place to hold a PCSO Annual Session, Anaheim kept coming up. PCSO had never held a meeting there, but the longer the discussion continued, the more the excitement grew. Jill Nowak There are so many positives about the location: Anaheim is in Southern California, so the weather should be perfect. Many PCSO members and their staff are within driving distance, and hotel rooms are plentiful in every price range. Disneyland is there so members with kids or grandkids, or those who are kids at heart, can have loads of fun. And what awesome timing, to be there October 2 - 5, during the huge Halloween celebration! Great restaurants, sports venues, and everything L.A. are not too far away. So it was decided, and we began planning the meeting. Then, it became even more exciting. PCSO was approached by the leaders of the World Implant Orthodontic Conference (WIOC) to explore the possibility of joining PCSO in Anaheim for WIOC's very first U.S. conference. The WIOC conference has been held for the past five years in locations all over the world. In October, a roster of internationally renowned speakers will present cutting-edge lectures focused on temporary anchorage devices (TADs), and other implant technology. We are anticipating a number of international attendees as well as delegates from across North America. We hope to see hundreds of PCSO members and their staff there. I encourage you to plan early. Registration is now open at: We opened a little early this year to facilitate planning. We hope PCSO members find it helpful to make their arrangements now and spend the next few months planning. I look forward to seeing you in October - and so does Mickey! PCSO Executive Director S 2 PCSO BULLETIN * SPRING 2014
