Particularly noteworthy, the new Misch Legacy Endowment (MLE) campaign was launched last year. In February 2016, Secretary General Dr. Jack Hinterman and Editor and Director of Communications Dr. Dov Sydney joined me in attending the International Congress of Oral Implantology (ICOI) meeting in Florida, where Dr. Carl Misch himself launched the million dollar MLE campaign with an inspirational address. he MLE exists to celebrate Dr. Misch’s lifetime achievements as an educator, author and clinician of oral implantology, and focuses on members of ICOI and the Misch Implant Institute. It is hoped that this fund will eventually reach a target of one million dollars. It was with great sadness that we learnt of Dr. Misch’s passing this past January. he College was represented at his funeral by Secretary General Jack Hinterman. Dr. Misch was proud to be a Fellow of the ICD, and the College was proud of his achievements in being a world-renowned pioneer of Implantology. Memorial donations were, and can be, made to the ICD Misch Legacy Endowment in support of Dental Education and Humanitarian aid worldwide. Additionally, the GVF and Henry Schein Cares grant program allocated more grants than ever before last year to humanitarian and educational projects worldwide. We also urge Fellows to consider donating through personal donations, Fellow Inspires Fellow (FIF) activities, wills and legacies. he latter can be named “Funds” ater a loved one, and can be arranged with tax advantage by reference to sound inancial advice. Programs in Vietnam and India he GVF partly funded events this year in both India and Vietnam, both of an educational nature. he educational program in Vietnam, which focused on dental infection control and antibiotic stewardship, was successfully provided by ICD and the Organization for Safety, Asepsis and Prevention (OSAP), and attracted over 500 participants. In addition, the College has now partnered with the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), supporting the ninth Get Smart About Antibiotics Week. Director of Development he College inances need strengthening, as does the Global Visionary Fund in order to make it sustainable. here is still much to be done, and I was pleased to be appointed Director of Development at the end of the Denver Council meeting. his position is developing and entails close liaison with the Secretary General and College Executive. It currently involves actively seeking funds from large dental corporations to strengthen College inances and grow the GVF. It is a challenge, but one that I relish. IMPRESSIVE TURNOUT More than 500 participants were present at the Vietnam Dental Safety Program, in Ho Chi Minh City.
