I N T E R NAT I O NALT H E G LO B E 201 6 SECRETARY GENERALS REVIEW The International College of Dentists will be 100 years old in the year 2020. To reach this milestone it has been necessary to be flexible and to keep up with changes that occur in the world. The past year has been a period of significant change. Sharing the Knowledge Support for dental education was one of the reasons ICD was proposed in 1920. Over the years dental education has become the work of dental schools larger dental associations and the industry. However ICD still has a role in altruistic dental education. ICDs Global Visionary Fund GVF supports continuing dental education programs where a need exists by sponsoring speakers mostly in developing nations or wherever and whenever the topic needs attention. Recognizing Dentists Mobility A dentist who qualifies for Fellowship may now belong to any Section under certain provisions adopted by the International Council. It is realized the traditional pathways to fellowship do not always meet the circumstances of some dentists. Examples would be dentists who are immigrants or those who are invited to fellowship by ICD Fellows they meet during international travel. Also dentists may be overlooked for fellowship for non-dental reasons such as tensions between nations and political or religious affiliations. To Grow or Not To Grow Bigger is not always better but growing the ICD will be necessary for a healthy future. An increase in numbers is required to achieve financial security while keeping international dues at moderate levels. Also ICD needs a larger presence in the world for increased influence and impact on issues we believe in. While some Fellows prefer the exclusivity that comes with a smaller membership most believe ICD should be inclusive to all who qualify. The International Council has set a goal of increasing the number of Active Fellows by 20 percent. International Affiliations The College continues to extend its influence in the world through collaboration and programing with related international organizations. Dr. Dov Sydney recently represented ICD during talks with FDI World Dental Federation in Geneva regarding future joint initiatives.
