Social Projects were carried out in order to get the oral education closer to the community in four institutions located in deprived areas. Regents Reunion The 2015 South American Regents Reunion took place in Santiago Chile October 22-24 with participating representatives from Peru Uruguay Brazil Argentina and Chile. Paraguay was absent and there was no word from the Colombians. Dr. David Mock a Canadian Fellow was invited as well. Councilor Christian Rochefort presented the result of topics discussed at the 2015 International Council Meeting in Ireland. Within that context the request of the Fourth Section was accepted. This request consisted of not establishing a diaspora for the Colombian colleagues who live and work out of Colombia but to belong to the ICD Districts where they have residency. The Colombian District has to be formed by colleagues who live have their professional work permit and work in Colombia. Additionally the Council agreed on awarding Master fellowship to Brazilian Fellow Pericles Correa de Freitas for his contribution to the development of ICD in the region. The entire reunion was surrounded by a friendly fraternal atmosphere and ended in a day trip to the seaside cities of Valparaiso and Via del Mar. The South American Regents Reunion 2016 will take place in June in Sao Paulo Brasil. Lastly we would like to rejuvenate Section IV and take it to the current standard of the worldwide ICD.
