AAO BRANDING AND RESEARCH INITIATIVE At the November conference call meeting of the AAOF BOD, the Directors took steps to further integrate the Foundation into the overall AAO Branding Effort, with new printed materials and a revised website expected to be available in time for the 2014 AAO Annual Session in New Orleans in late April. The Research Initiative, the previously announced campaign to help ensure that the very best orthodontic research in the world takes place in graduate orthodontic residency programs in the U.S. and Canada, will remain the focus of the organization's fundraising efforts, and this new branding look will be reflected in those materials as well. (See the flier at for more information, including how you can be a part of this important effort.) KEYSTONE SOCIETY Members of the Foundation's Keystone Society are those individuals who have made a Continued Commitment to the Specialty® to include the AAOF in their estate plans. A total of 352 AAO members have become Keystone Society members, including 114 of those who are also members of the Schulman Study Group. This represents an increase of some 50 percent in Keystone Society membership, and SSG members now constitute just under one-third of all Keystone Society members. The Foundation encourages all of us to speak to our alumni group members, study club members and others within the orthodontic community to encourage them to become AAOF Keystones.
