SENIOR ADVISORY PANEL *

A Senior Advisory Panel has been established to provide Seniors with an opportunity to continue to share their experiences with the members of the Eastern Component for our mutual benefit.

When a regular member requests a change of status to senior active or senior retired, the Secretary shall send the applicant a Change of Membership Status form which shall indicate his or her desire to be placed on the Senior Advisory Panel. The Secretary shall maintain a list of the panel members and indicated committee preferences. Each year the panel shall be reviewed and as new senior members are added, their committee preference shall be indicated.

The President shall use this list to make committee assignments to the following committees:

1. Academic Credentials Committee

2. Awards Committee

3. By-laws Committee

4. Examination Committee

5. Local Arrangements Committee

6. Mentor Committee

7. Program Committee

The President may appoint a senior to serve on a committee in one of three categories:

1. CONSULTANT TO A COMMITTEE. *

Seniors could serve well as a Consultant on any of the listed committees. As a Consultant, the senior serves in an advisory capacity and does not interfere with the normal flow of members through the Committee. A senior can serve consecutive terms as a Consultant.

2. ACTIVE MEMBER OF A COMMITTEE. *

Seniors could serve as an active member of every committee except the Examination Committee. The Examination Committee is the only committee where it would be ill advised to appoint a senior as an active member. The committee is usually used as a progression for younger members to advance towards an officer position in the Society.

3. CHAIRPERSON OF A COMMITTEE. *

Senior members would be ideal choices for Chairperson of the Local Arrangements and Outreach programs since they have the experience, contacts and time to carry out these responsibilities. In the future assignment of these seniors to chair these committees could become standard protocol.

The Senior selected as an active member or as a Consultant on a committee should have the approval of the chairman. If serving on or consulting for the Academic, Credential, Examination, Local Arrangements or Outreach Committee, the Senior accepts the responsibility of attending the annual meeting.

SR 1990-1 *

PROGRAM POINT SYSTEM *

In order to broaden the definition of “contribution to the profession,” as used in the Bylaws of this Component, and to encourage member program participation and/or contributions in a greater variety of ways, the following Program Point System is adopted:

  1. The President Elect, in addition to his/her duties as detailed in the Bylaws, shall award and record the contribution points (“Angle points”) for each Regular member and report these to the Secretary-Treasurer for tabulation and publication.
  2. Each year following the Annual Meeting, the Angle point standings shall be recalculated and the new totals printed in the program of the next meeting. The object of each Regular member is to maintain a positive point score. A low or negative score indicates that the member needs to make some type of contribution.
  3. Each year, one point is subtracted from each Regular Member’s point total (whether in attendance or not). Senior members have no obligation to make presentations and are therefore exempt from the Angle Program Point system.
  4. The maximum number of total points that can be recorded is limited to 6. In setting up each year’s scientific program the Program Committee will contact those Regular Members who are low in point accumulation. A point level of (-)1 requires a scientific program contribution by the Regular Member. A point score of (-)3 will trigger an Executive Committee inquiry, jeopardizing continued membership.
  5. This Point System Resolution will be subject to re-evaluation by a Special Committee appointed by the President in March 1993.
  6. The terms of this Resolution are subject to the provisions contained in the Bylaws where applicable.
  7. The Secretary-Treasurer will receive a credit of one point for each year in office. All other officers will serve without point credit.
  8. Angle points will be awarded to Regular members on the following basis:
ACTIVITY ANGLE CONTRIBUTION POINTS
  • Present an original Paper (20 minutes or longer) to the Component (* and **) 3
  • Present a Paper at a Biennial Meeting 3
  • Publish a Paper in the ANGLE ORTHODONTIST (***) 3

* Each Regular and Regular Member-at-Large must present an original paper at least once every five (5) years.
AMENDED 2010: The Secretary Treasurer has the paper presentation requirement suspended during his/her term in office.
** Each Affiliate member must present an original paper to the Component to be eligible for election to Regular membership.
*** For papers published or presented with more than one Eastern Component author, the authors must indicate how the Angle Contribution Point credit is to be apportioned and recorded.
