“The Membership Recruitment and Retention conference offers membership volunteers and staff an excellent opportunity to hear and share best practices related to the recruitment and retention of members,” said Dr. Michael Durbin, ADA Council on Membership chair. “It also offers the opportunity for the ADA to demonstrate the resources that are available to aid in this process, from data analytics to specific programming. This is truly a Power of Three initiative in action.”

Those attending the conference may:

  • Obtain new ideas and strategies about emerging, promising and best practices from the ADA and state and local dental societies.
  • Connect with membership peers from across the country to discuss common membership challenges and brainstorm solutions.
  • Develop actionable recruitment and retention plans for use within your dental society.

Volunteer leaders and staff involved with dental society membership growth efforts — including society leaders, membership chairs, executive staff, membership staff and other stakeholders — are encouraged to attend. The event is a chance to recharge and elevate membership focus through a combination of presentations, educational sessions, peer-to-peer learning opportunities and discussion forums.
