Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists Bulletin Fall 2019 - 4

President's Report

My Final Thoughts

Dr. Kurt Stormberg
PCSO President 2018-2019

I want to begin my final presidential address to
our membership by saying how honored I was to
lead this great organization. The PCSO is the premier AAO constituency and the leader within our
specialty. As I wind down my year as president of
the PCSO, I wanted to look back on our organization's many accomplishments over the past year
and then look forward to the challenges of the
future. I opened my year with a quote, "United we
stand, and divided we fall." I am happy to inform
the membership that our specialty of orthodontics is united and looking to improve our members' careers and strengthen the specialty.
Over the past year, we have begun the work of
tackling the many issues affecting our members
with the tools we put in place in 2018 under the
leadership of our immediate past president, Dr.
Kam Olfert. Our three Critical Issues Task Forces
have made great progress on the topics of identifying and reaching out to volunteers, creating
component resources, and developing nondues
revenues for the PCSO. Under the leadership of
Drs. Trista Felty, Dean Heinrichs, and Michael
Feinberg, these task forces have already worked
to improve our resources for components, to better identify and recruit volunteers, and to begin
to identify ways of creating nondues revenue to
keep our membership's dues affordable. I look
forward to the continued work of these task forces to put concrete solutions in place to address
these pressing issues. We are also working on
improvements for our outstanding member publication, the PCSO Bulletin, through the Bulletin
Review Task Force. Dr. Andrew Harner and his
task force have conducted a readership survey to
learn what our members like about the current
Bulletin and what we can change to improve the
reader experience.
In addition to these task forces, there are many
committees that continue to serve our members and their needs. I especially want to give
recognition to our Social Media Committee, who
broadened our outreach this year to our members
with a more robust social media presence. All of

our committee members are very dedicated volunteers, and we owe them a debt of gratitude for
the tireless work they have done for the PCSO.
On the AAO front, the PCSO is blessed with very
effective representatives to the AAO councils and
committees helping steer our profession in the
right direction. These groups help guide and implement the bylaws and policies that are set forth
by the AAO House of Delegates. Speaking of the
House of Delegates, I want to give a huge thanks
to our outgoing chair of the PCSO Delegation, Dr.
Ron Wolk. Dr. Wolk has been a tremendous leader
for the PCSO and is finishing up a highly successful stint as delegation chair. During Dr. Wolk's
time, the PCSO has brought forward resolutions
that have made significant improvements to the
governance of the AAO. He will be missed as our
chair, but knowing Dr. Wolk, I'm sure he will continue volunteering to help our specialty.
On the continuing education front, the PCSO is
the leader in offering high-quality orthodontic
meetings. We will follow the highly successful
spring CE meeting in Las Vegas with a dynamic Annual Session meeting in Honolulu, under
the general chairmanship of Dr. Frank Beglin,
which has already surpassed our expectations
for registration. The success of our continuing
education program shows that the PCSO is on
the right track when it comes to listening to our
members' education needs and giving them dynamic, world-renowned speakers and entertaining venues for our meetings. The PCSO planning
committees will continue to innovate and tweak
the future content and meeting venues to stay on
the cutting edge of continuing education in the
specialty of orthodontics.
All of these programs and resources that the
PCSO provides to our members would not be possible without the help and leadership of our Executive Director, Ms. Callie Castro, and her team
of experts. The PCSO has transformed under the
guidance of Ms. Castro, and I want to thank her
for the wisdom and advice she has given me over
