Once again, under the egis of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology, representatives of the national ophthalmologic organizations were gathered for a combined meeting in Chicago on June 11. In addition to the members of the Executive Committee of the Division of Ophthalmology, 20 ophthalmologists representing 17 organizations attended. The conference chairman was again the present president of the academy, Dr Bradley Straatsma, whose organizational and diplomatic talents are unexcelled.

The agenda covered many points of common interest. The proposed incorporation of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology was discussed, and the Articles of Incorporation, the Bylaws, and the Standing Rules of the Division of Ophthalmology were, in general, approved by the conference members. A motion to incorporate will be submitted to the membership of the academy at the next business meeting in Dallas on Tuesday, Oct 4,1977. There seemed to be unanimous agreement to endorse this motion.
