Dear Members,

Greetings from the Head Office! As all us are gearing up for the Hyderabad annual conference, it gives me immense pleasure to pen down a few developments for all of you.

Our Head Office is striving to become paper free and be more eco-friendly and efficient. New member registrations have been mandatorily made as an online registration process. All the new members are using this facility in full swing. Very soon, the Annual General Body meeting (AGM) agenda, minutes of the last AGM, audited balance sheet and nomination forms will also be available on the web.

I request all of you to kindly upload your profiles in the section titled "my iacde" on our website, This would enable us to issue new ID cards to all of you. As a proactive step, we are planning to open up an IACDE counter during the Hyderabad conference to issue the ID cards on the spot. We are hiring a photographer during the conference to get high-quality and uniform images in the ID cards. Therefore, I request you to kindly not to miss us in Hyderabad.

As a bonus for all those who upload their profile information on the website, lapel pins of our association will be issued. In this context, we call for a good lapel pin design from the members. Please send your designs to our mail ID, [email protected], by September 30, 2013. The selected design will be awarded during the Hyderabad AGM as per the suggestion of our president, Dr. Dhillon. We will also be issuing life member certificates soon; therefore, my dear members, please keep a track of us and do not miss anything.

It also gives me immense pride to share with you the news that from 2013 onwards, our national journal - the Journal of Conservative Dentistry - has become the first national specialty journal to bring out six issues per year (bimonthly). I commend the entire editorial team for their efforts in bringing the Journal of Conservative Dentistry to this level of academic excellence.

It is a matter of national honor that India will be hosting two international conferences in the forthcoming years. The 11 th World Congress of the International Federation of Endodontic Associations will be held in Chennai during September 2019. The 19 th Conference of the Asia Pacific Endodontic Confederation will be held at New Delhi in 2017. I commend Dr. Gopi Krishna and Dr. Sanjay Miglani, respectively, for bringing these prestigious international conferences to the Indian shores.

I also take this opportunity to request all the Heads of Departments of various colleges in our country to update their college directory in our website, which will help us to keep in touch even better. Looking forward to meeting you all in person soon during our national conference…

With warm regards,
