It gives me great pleasure to serve as the President of The Aesthetic Society, especially during such a joyous time as our upcoming 50th Anniversary. 2017 will mark 50 years since our founders first gathered together in Venice, Italy’s famous Harry’s Bar and jotted down notes on a cocktail napkin. Those thoughts led to the formation of our Society, and we’ve gone from scrappy newcomer to established and respected in a very short 50 years. On April 27–May 2, 2017, we’ll be joining together once again for our annual Aesthetic Meeting in San Diego, CA, at which we’ll be celebrating this special milestone.
Colleagues and friends will reconnect, exceptional education will be offered, and many surprises await you as we gather to celebrate and learn. Exhibit dates are April 29–May 1. Registration is now open and I hope you’ll make plans to join us.
In particular, I hope to see you at the Presidential Welcome Celebration as we toast
50 Years of the Art of Aesthetics. It promises to be a wonderful evening, full of food and fun. Business/Cocktail attire, please, and no one under 18 admitted. My wife, Jan, and I look forward to seeing you there.
The Aesthetic Meeting is our annual opportunity to reconnect, hone our skills, and learn more about this exciting specialty.
Here’s to our next 50 years of aesthetics!
