Biennial Meeting Information

It is time to plan to attend the 33rd Biennial Meeting of the Charles H. Tweed International Foundation. It will be held in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, November 3 to 6 at the Skivrin Hilton. It is a historic resort with ambience and class. Your accommodations will be wonderful. You will need to visit and under “Biennial Meeting” select “Hotel Accommodations” to make your reservation.

A pre-meeting workshop will be held on Wednesday, November 3 at the Skivrin Hilton. A half-day of the workshop will be presented by Larry Tadlock, Chair, Baylor Texas A & M, and will be devoted to superimposition techniques for digital cephalograms. The rest of the day will be devoted to University of Oklahoma student research presentations and a lecture by Dennis Ward. The workshop fee will be $150. This nominal fee includes breakfast and lunch on Wednesday and dinner at the Skivrin Hilton on Wednesday night. The Skivrin has reserved a block of rooms for the workshop. Those who plan to attend the workshop will need to arrive in Oklahoma City on Tuesday, November 2 and book a room at the Skivrin for Tuesday night through Saturday night the 6th, the last day of the Biennial meeting. This pre Biennial Meeting workshop should be enjoyable, fun and very educational.

Ray Fuqua and I are organizing a very interesting and dynamic scientific program. It will begin on Thursday, November 4 at 3:00 at the Skivrin Hotel. Thursday’s program will be given by three Baylor, Texas A & M students, Steve McCullough and a Korean speaker. On Friday, we will hear from many of our younger members and from Dr. Frans Currier, Chair, University of Oklahoma, the L. Levern Merrifield Memorial Lecturer. Saturday’s lectures will be given by many of our “seasoned” members.

The model room will open Thursday morning. Your Board will meet on Thursday morning, so all members who are not on the Board are invited to put their “plaster on the table” and study each other’s case reports. After the Thursday Examining Committee lunch, committee members will look at case reports for those who desire to become Fellows of the Charles Tweed Foundation. Case report presentation information for all who seek to become Fellows and all members who are required to bring case reports can be downloaded from the website, The model display room will be located near the lecture room and will be open each day from early in the morning until late in the afternoon. Lectures will end at approximately 1:00 on Friday and Saturday so that members can enjoy the camaraderie and the educational experience of the model room. All members are encouraged to bring case reports. It is our DUTY to do so!

The social schedule is rather simple. A light breakfast and a beautiful lunch will be served each day of the meeting. The lunch and breakfast are open to all participants and their spouses/guests. There will be a reception with heavy hors d’oeuvres Thursday evening, November 3. Friday evening is “free”. There is no planned function for Friday evening. On Saturday evening we will have the President’s Dinner Dance during which we will honor some very special people.
