World Clinical Laser Institute Symposium Postponed

The World Clinical Laser Institute and its Platinum Sponsors Biolase Technology and Henry Schein Dental understand that these challenging times are affecting every sector of the economy, including many practices. We have heard from a number of you that the cost of attending a Super Symposium in added expense and time away from your practices would be a hardship at this time.
After extensive deliberation, the WCLI Executive Board has made the difficult decision to postpone the Super Symposium previously announced for January. We know this comes as a disappointment - the Super Symposium is, after all, the highlight of the year in laser education. That very fact weighed most heavily in the decision to delay it until a time when the greatest number of members possible would be able to attend and benefit from it.
Like every economic downturn, this one too will come to an end before long. The current uncertainty however means that we will have to wait until that turnaround is in sight before determining a new date for the Super Symposium. We will continue assessing economic conditions in expectation of that time. We thank you for your patience in awaiting announcement of a new Super Symposium date, especially WCLI faculty who have been working so hard on their presentations in anticipation of sharing them with you.
We will be contacting those of you who have already registered for the January event to arrange a refund of your tuition. Meanwhile, in order to make sure that you have an opportunity to keep up with the latest in laser dentistry, we will expand our lineup of regional one-day WCLI Symposiums in 2009 - more information on those events will be coming soon.
The World Clinical Laser Institute continues to be the largest and strongest laser education organization, thanks to your continuing support.
Best regards,

William E. Brown
Executive Director

They should think about doing it live on the web. Less cost for everyone. It does not replace the actual event but can still create something exciting.
