Annual Meeting Highlights: Office of President-Elect Is Established
The Membership of the American Academy of Dermatology has revised the AAD's Bylaws to create, for the first time, the office of President-Elect. Harry L. Arnold, Jr., M.D., Honolulu, Hawaii, was selected for this position by the Board of Directors at the 33rd Annual Meeting in December—thus becoming the first President-Elect in the organization's history.Interestingly, the Academy for many years had a President-Designate for two or three days (the span between the election date and the completion of the Annual Meeting). At the 1974 session, the AAD had a President, President-Designate, and a President-Elect for a two-day period.As reported in the February 1975 issue of the AAD/NPD Report, the Board elected Rudolf L. Baer, M.D., New York, N.Y. as its 1975 President—succeeding Frederick A. J. Kingery, M.D., Portland, Ore. Herbert Mescon, M.D., Boston, Mass., was chosen as Vice-President. Officers continuing
