4 8 Journal of the International College of Dentists President David Crum 2016 Officers President David Crum Past President Jackie Robinson Vice President John Owen AM Registrar Tom Tseng Editor Petrina Bowden Editor Petrina Bowden Presidents Greeting David Crum We are told that the International College of Dentists is a leading honorary dental organization dedicated to the recognition of outstanding professional achievement and meritorious service and the continued progress of dentistry for the benefit of all humankind. For me its nice to be invited to join a College with those ideals but what happens then What direct what tangible and what practical action can we as Fellows participate in and observe to support the substance of the above statement My impression is that ICD may be another add-on activity somewhat down the immediate individual list of professional actions and interests of its membership a membership that has been selected for professional contribution already achieved. Most are busy and highly successful colleagues. Section VIII has healthy financial reserves but I suspect our most significant resource is the huge leadership Section VIII AUSTRALASIA www.icdsectionviii.org expertise and the commitment and understanding of our profession that exists within our collective membership. So my very real interest is how we utilize that collective resource to pass skills onto aspiring younger members of dentistry particularly to emerging leaders. In these times of increasing competition for our time the proliferation of electronic interaction the uncertainty of secure employment and the diversification of backgrounds of those entering dentistry a focus on collegiality is a good start. The Strategic Plan Over the last year the Board has drafted our five-year strategic plan through year 2020. We have focused on where we want to be stating how we plan to get there and what tangible things we can do to support the Colleges higher aspirations. Our Section aspires to recognize leadership within dentistry Engage with and support future leaders within dentistry Support projects that improve oral health in underserved areas of our region Foster collegial collaboration within dentistry demonstrate good governance and uphold ethically professional standards THE BOARD 2 Australasia Board members LR Intl Councilor Clive Ross Editor Jenny Smyth AM Registrar Tom Tseng President David Crum Regent Rick Sawers Past PresidentInt l Councilor Jackie Robinson Treasurer Keith Watkins Vice President John Owen AM THE GLOBE 2016
