Article 2 The WFO Council convenes for the first t

Representatives for WFO affiliated organizations convene for first meeting of the WFO Council

The WFO Council, which met for the first time on April 30, 2000, during the 100th AAO Annual Session, the 5th International Orthodontic Congress and the 2nd Meeting of the WFO, was composed of representatives from each country that has national orthodontic organizations affiliated with the WFO. In addition, 40 councilors were selected at large, based on each affiliated organization's pro rata share of the total WFO membership. (Only fellows who were in good standing with the WFO as of Dec. 31, 1998, were counted as part of the total WFO membership.) In all, 82 councilors certified their credentials to the WFO Council's Credentials Committee, which was chaired by Dr. Mauro Cozzani of Italy. Below is the complete list of councilors reported to the WFO Secretariat by the affiliated organizations before the council meeting. However, some councilors were unable to attend, and others certified their credentials as substitutes.
