Farewell Message from Prof. Hee-Moon Kyung

 Dear Members and friends,

 It was a great privilege to serve as the 4th President of the World Society of Lingual Orthodontics. I hope that during my term I have been able to make a positive impact on both the current and future of WSLO.

 The Active member listing has been updated including the newly become members at the 2017 Meeting in Bangkok. Also, I am happy to announce that we have 2 new affiliate branches, the Taiwanese and the Peruvian Association of Lingual Orthodontists. In the general assembly in Bangkok, we have revised the lifetime membership fee and the affilated branch registration fee. With the donation from the Korean Association of Lingual Orthodontists, we have renovated our website.

 I am grateful to everyone for allowing me to have led you this year. I want to thank the Executive Committee, the vice president Dr. Hashiba, and the Founding members (이름..) for their dedication.

 But most importantly, I would like express my sincerest gratitude to you, the Members, for your endless support during the last 2 years. It has been my pleasure to serve you.

 I will see you in Barcelona, and I wish all of you the best.



 Hee-Moon Kyung
