PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE Hello Everyone! Wow, how time flies! It seems like our Annual Conference in Banff was just yesterday. What a solid and informative Scientific Program! The trade show was the largest we’ve ever had, the first ever Career Fair was well-received, and I’ve never heard so much praise for the social events. The early snow may have been a primer for the imminent cold weather, but I believe it added that little extra special touch of Rockies’ magic to our first, and hopefully not last, visit to Banff. A very sincere thank you to all of our members who make it possible. As a small, not-for-profit organization, we can only rely on ourselves to maintain and sustain the CAPD/ACDP, the voice of Paediatric Dentistry in Canada. Well done! At this time of year as we reflect on family and friends, we are reminded of how fortunate we really are. We are so privileged to be Paediatric Dentists in this great country of Canada. The Ottawa Local Organizing Committee is busy planning a very special Annual Conference for September 2019 with registration beginning in the New Year. I look forward to greeting you at this next exciting event! I wish everyone health, happiness and success in the coming year. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Season’s Greetings, Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year to everyone! Best wishes and at your service, Ray
