Board of Regents Meeting he Board of Regents of the European Section met during the Section’s 61st Anniversary Meeting in Milan on June 30th, and in Paris on November 19th. he Board discussed and made decisions for all the regular administrative business of the Section. Following the decisions of the International Council in October 2015 in Dublin, the Board prioritized the growth and development of the Section. Ater a long discussion and because of the Section’s nature involving 36 diferent countries, it was decided to ask each District to appoint a Membership Committee, which will help the Regent and Vice Regents to identify deserving dentists within each District to be invited for fellowship, and equally important, to promote actions within the District to retain its active Fellows throughout the years. he Board felt that this will facilitate better the growth and development of the Section since it will aim for the growth and development of each District. Another issue that was successfully completed was the change of the Phillip Dear Foundation to a charitable organization, thanks to the eforts of our Section’s Treasurer Dr. Hendrik Donker. All donations to the Phillip Dear Foundation are now recognized as Journal of the International College of Dentists 3 8 T H E G LO B E • 2 0 1 7
