Dear Fellows:

It’s hard to believe that our Annual Meeting, Fellowship Orientation Program, Convocation and Luau Dinner honoring our New Fellows is just around the corner!  In a few short weeks, we will once again be enjoying one another’s company and marveling at Hawaii’s gorgeous scenery!  The USA Section Office staff members have been busy planning and preparing for all of the events and attending to the myriad of details that make our annual meetings so successful.

It is also crunch time for the Candidate process.  Deputy Regents and Regents: please check the USA Section website at least a couple times per week to make sure all steps have been completed for each and every nominee in your state and/or District.  We do not want to disappoint any deserving Candidates!  Additionally, if you sponsored someone for Fellowship, be sure you stay in touch with that person and help them through the final stages of the process.  The Candidate will appreciate your interest and attention!

This year our Convocation will be held on Friday, October 19th at 1:00 p.m. in the Tapa Ballroom on the second level of the Tapa Tower.  Afterward, beginning at 4:45 p.m., there will be a reception and a traditional Hawaiian Luau Dinner on the Hilton Hawaiian Village’s Great Lawn near the Rainbow Tower.  A complete 2018 Annual Meeting Schedule of Events with locations has been posted on our website event page:

The Friday evening luau will be the perfect time for you and your guests to wear an ICD Hawaiian shirt that the Foundation is offering for sale. While we will have some shirts to sell onsite, sizes and quantities will be limited!

This Key-Mail is a combined issue for June and July.  It is filled with news and events from many of our Districts. Thank you to everyone who sent in articles for us to share!

I hope that you enjoy the remainder of your summer and I am looking forward to seeing many of you in Hawaii this October!

In Fellowship,
Elaine C. Wagner, DDS
