NEDS Officer Installation

Posted by Paul on 10/8/2012 12:06:00 PM

I was on hand in Kirksville last Friday for the installation of officers for the Northeast Dental Society. MDA President, Dr. Elwood Rice did the honors. In the phototop left you will see Secretary-Treasurer, Dr. Michael Berry ofMoberly; President,Dr. Ed Norman ofLancaster and President-Elect, Dr. Matt Theriac of Macon. Congratsto these men and thank you for your local leadership. Additionally, Dr. Rice honored outgoing president Dr. Joel Pratt with a plaquecommemorating his tenure.
During thebusiness meeting Dr. Ricegave the members a wide reaching update on current issues facing the MDA. I spoke briefly on the activities of the MDA Foundation and made an appeal for MOMOM volunteers. I also mentioned the upcoming Mouse Race fundraiser to be held at Mid-Continent Dental Congress. I spoke of the need for sponsorships and auction items and I'm delighted to report that NEDS stepped right up and made a $250 contribution. With that they earned the naming rights for the Mouse Race Track. All races will be run on "Northeast Downs". Thank you for that generous act!
MDA Trustee, Dr. Tisha Kice Briggs, made special note to congratulate Dr. Harlo Donelson on fifty years in dentistry. That's quite a feat! And the membersdecided that the NEDS would host a Welcome Students Reception when the first A.T. Still class is formalized. This is a great way to step right into building a favorable relationship with the new school. I will help them with details as time draws near. It just goes to show you that although small, the NEDS is active in key roles within organized dentistry. In fact, the MDA President-Elect, Dr. Lynne Barbour, fromKahoka will be the first ever female president of the MDA. Kudos on all the fine news coming from the NEDS.
