The ADA Council on Membership invites you to join fellow dental society membership staff and volunteer leaders from across the nation to recognize, develop and exchange innovations in membership recruitment and retention strategies.

Who should attend? Staff and volunteer leaders with a key role in the planning and implementation of their dental society’s membership recruitment and retention strategies. Delegations of 1-4 individuals per society is recommended.

Top 3 reasons to attend:

  1. Learn about front-line issues critical to membership engagement from nationally-recognized speakers and industry experts.
  2. Concrete ideas and cutting-edge information that can help you take your organization’s membership efforts to the next level. 
  3. Build your ADA and association management network through unique opportunities with membership peers from across the country.

Want to share your great idea with other dental societies at the ADA Annual Conference on Membership? Submit a Flash Update!

The idea is simple. Flash Updates are short talks to inform others on their successful membership engagement. Presenters get five minutes and up to 20 slides to share key strategies and lessons learned. Attendees will learn about how other societies have engaged members and what steps they can take to do the same.
