As the 2009 president of the PCSA [Pacific Coast Surgical Association], I am honored to welcome you here today. In 1974, when I was a junior faculty member at UCSF [University of California at San Francisco], I was fortunate enough to attend my first meeting of this society on the island of Maui, Hawaii. Because of the enthusiastic friendship evident among its members and the outstanding quality of the scientific meeting, I knew immediately that this was a group to which I would want to belong. Today, the PCSA continues to represent an exemplary society of community and academic surgeons.
