Hinterman, Registrar Registrar’s Report The year 2016 will be long remembered in history by the International College of Dentists. he College was extended to nations where it formerly did not exist. he number of new Fellows broke all previous records for the ICD Regions in Asia and Africa. he College thanks all who made these historical events happen. It takes a team; those who nominate, those who plan, those who work behind the scenes and the supporting staf members who manage details. hese are exciting times for ICD. Region 41 Bangladesh ICD Region 41 was chartered as a new ICD entity in January of 2016 and welcomed 12 new Fellows under former Regent Dr. Md. Jahangir Kabir. Later in March, Bangladesh sent an additional 22 new Fellows to Kuala Lumpur for initiation during the meetings of the ICD Section XX Asia Sector, under the leadership of Fellow Mostaque Sattar. Dr. Sattar has now assumed the leadership role as Regent for Bangladesh due to the sudden death of Dr. Kabir in early 2016. As recent as one year ago there were few, if any, Fellows in Bangladesh. he future is suddenly bright for ICD in that nation. Region 27 Southern Africa he Southern Africa Region was chartered an oicial ICD entity during February 2016 ceremonies at the dental school of the University of the Western Capes in Cape Town, South Africa. South Africa and several nearby nations have historically been a challenge for ICD. Visits by 2016 International President Phillip Dowell, and the friendship he established with Dental School Dean Yusuf Osman, provided the necessary break through. Presiding over the initiation ceremonies with President Dowell and assisting with development was ICD Councilor for Africa Pankaj Patel, of Kenya. he University of the Western Capes provided the venue, program support, robes and a celebratory reception. he dental school will become the host of ICD in South Africa, and Prof. Osman has been installed as its irst ICD Regent. hese are the essential ingredients needed for ICD Regions to lourish and for which ICD will be forever grateful. Region 29 Egypt, Sudan hese nations were chartered as ICD Region 29 during March 2016 ceremonies in Alexandria, Egypt. he ICD initiation ceremony was conducted in collaboration with the regional AOIA Stars meeting, and it involved 40 new Fellows from both Alexandria and Cairo. he event capped yearlong eforts by ICD Councilor Patel, who also was pivotal in putting an excellent leadership team in place. Prof. Ahmed AbdelHakim, of Alexandria, was installed as Regent, and Prof. Amr Abdel Azim, of Cairo, was installed as Vice Regent. We are especially proud to have Prof. Ibrahim El Ghandour, the Minister of Foreign Afairs in Sudan, as a new Fellow.
