The Congress Organizing Committee invites you to join us in hosting professionals from around the world at the 12th International Congress on Cleft Lip/Palate and Related Craniofacial Anomalies, May 5 - 10, 2013 at the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista, Florida, located in the WALT DISNEY WORLD® Resort.

The 1st International Congress was held in the United States in 1969. Convening every four years at locations around the world, the Congress is devoted to promoting and facilitating the care of individuals with cleft lip and palate and related craniofacial anomalies. The 12th International Congress represents only the second time that the United States has hosted this conference.

The Congress will attract over 1200 professionals and professionals-in-training from every corner of the globe. Advancing the care of affected individuals worldwide is dependent on opportunities such as this, for professionals to exchange research findings and clinical outcomes. Your support of the Congress will contribute greatly to the success of this International endeavor.

There are a number of ways in which you can support the Congress. As a Special Friend of the Congress, you can support the scientific program or enhance the Congress with special technology and professional networking opportunities. As a Premium Educational Sponsor, you will have the opportunity to advertise your company/organization and its products and services to conference attendees. Premium Educational Sponsors also fund international scholarships to help professionals-in-training attend the meeting. Opportunities are also available to support the Congress through the sponsorship of educational and social program events.

As professionals involved with cleft care, we share the honor of hosting this very special event. On behalf of the Congress Organizing Committee, thank you for your pledge of support by February 1, 2013. I look forward to seeing you next May at the 12th International Congress.

Sincerely yours,

Ross E. Long, Jr., DMD, PhD
