A Message from the President – Dr.Robert Vaught

Dr Robert Vaught

The disappointment we share in the cancellation of the 2020 Annual Meeting is tempered only by our gratitude to Dr. Bruce and Jill Goldstein for their leadership as Dr. Goldstein concludes his tenure as the 2019 - 2020 College President. He has been the perfect leader to serve in a time of change and very difficult decisions. The College also thanks Dr. Bryn Cooper as she concludes her service as an At-Large Councilor due to other commitments. Through this time of change, the Council leaders continue to focus on the mission of the College in offering services, such as the Prep Courses, to assist with continuing to increase Board certification.

Kathy and I look forward to welcoming everyone to our hometown of Savannah, Georgia for the next Annual College Meeting in the spring, where we can properly thank our dear friends. Read more on the March 19 - 22, 2021 family gathering.
