President's Report

I am very honored and blessed to have been elected president of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. I thank the Nominating Committee who looked favorably upon me for this position and the membership who have put their trust in me. I am grateful for all the members who have worked so hard and long in the committees, on the Board, and as teachers and leaders in this wonderful family of ours. I extend my gratitude to our founders and the past presidents who have stood at the helm through smooth sailing and rough waters. Through their wisdom and leadership, we have weathered difficult times and have come through them better and stronger than before. The hard work and courage of the Academy's leadership has earned for us recognition throughout organized medicine both here and abroad.

Over the last few years, it has been my privilege as treasurer, to have worked with presidents Stephen S. Park, MD; Edwin F. Williams, MD; and Fred G. Fedok, MD. Intrinsic and extrinsic factors were buffeting the Academy's wellbeing. Decline in membership, decreasing industry support, lower numbers of exhibitors at meetings, and increasing financial uncertainty were surfacing just a few years ago. This prompted several discussions in the winter of 2015 between past, current, and future presidents, Phillip R. Langsdon, MD, and myself.

Dr. Langsdon, the president-elect, has had 23 years of experience running multispecialty facial plastic surgery meetings and his knowledge and experience has greatly helped in the restructuring, planning, and efficiency of our meetings. The outcome of these discussions prompted two exigent Board of Directors meetings in Boston in April, and Chicago in July of 2015. This resulted in putting into motion plans to review and restructure the architecture and management of the Academy. Dr. Fedok, our outgoing president, has had a very successful year working with Steve Jurich to develop and carry out a plan to bolster the infrastructure of the Academy, begin a turnaround of the finances, and bring in new and dynamic staffing.

My appreciation extends to the Academy's staff, both seasoned and new, whose hard work and loyalty keeps the dayto-day workings of this organization on an even keel.

And appreciation to Mr. Jurich. now celebrating his first anniversary at the helm as executive vice president and CEO of the Academy. He assumed this role at the retirement of Steve Duffy, our longtime friend in this position, and after an exhaustive search led by then president Dr. Williams. Mr. Jurich brought with him excellent credentials and successful experience in managing the financial turnaround of another nonprofit health care organization. He has begun a restructuring of the culture and mechanics of the Academy office. We are now beginning to recover and move forward under his guidance. This task has been monumental and Steve leads with confidence, experience, enthusiasm, and intelligence.

My service will be the third year of a continuum of policy to set straight and stabilize our Academy. In the coming weeks and months, I intend to broaden my engagement with younger members. My goal is to listen closely and to seek new ideas, perspectives, and suggestions so that we can work together to make the Academy an even stronger and better organization.

It is a great honor to be elected president. We are friends, colleagues, mentors, and students. I have learned much in my

two positions on the Board of Directors. The last three years as treasurer allowed me to participate very actively in the leadership. I come now with an intimate knowledge of the mechanics of the Academy's governance. I have experienced its unity, discord, and unity once more. I have known that which appeared fraught with danger and helped work through troubling issues to guide our society on its storied journey into the future of facial plastic surgery. It is my greatest honor to accept your trust to lead the Academy. It has been my professional home for a very long time and I will serve with all my energies in its best interests with an ear to the past and an eye to the future.

I urge all of you to contact me with ideas and suggestions for the betterment of the Academy. The Academy belongs to all of us and we must sustain it and contribute to its viability and growth. I will return any email or call I receive within one day if not several hours. Also, please come forward with desires you may have to be on any committee. It will happen. I ask this of all members but especially the younger physicians. And to the younger members, please participate in committees, come to the podium at meetings. All of you are accomplished and have important and productive thoughts and ideas.

Whoever would have thought that a facial plastic surgeon from a small town in Western New England could rise to this post?

As a young practitioner, one of my inspirations was Loring Pratt, MD. He started his practice of otolaryngology in Waterville, Maine in 1948, when I was two years old. In 1986, Lynn and I went on a People to People mission to China led by Dr. Pratt and his wife Jennie. From that small, Maine town, he rose to become the first president of the newly formed American Academy of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery in 1981.

Lastly, I would not be here without the love, devotion, advice, and support of Lynn, my wife and partner of 48 years. Her calm sensibilities, patience, and guidance have kept this tempest of me somewhat near the ground. I could have not done all of this without you, Lynn. I wish to also thank my talented son, Jason, who did the illustrations for two of the books I edited and several journal articles I have written. And Jody, my wonderful daughter, who has worked in our office off and on since she was 13 doing everything from filing to marketing before moving on to bigger and brighter endeavors.

I am humbled and honored to have been given this torch to carry for the AAFPRS from my small New England town--it is a great honor and a great responsibility.

I am very optimistic about our future. It is a fresh wind blowing over this rock of our specialty. A fresh wind brings us a new dawn. I see for us a new and exciting tomorrow.

William H. Truswell, MD President 2017-2018 American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the Educational and Research Foundation for the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
