Engage with peers as a speaker or competitor at the Annual Session

May 21, 2012

San Francisco—ADA members can be more involved in the community of dentistry at the Annual Session Oct. 18-21 by interacting with their colleagues as a clinical speaker or a contest participant.

Connecting: An aspiring speaker hones his skills at the New and Emerging Speaker stage at the 2011 Annual Session in Las Vegas.

The ADA’s New and Emerging Speaker Stage, back for its third year, gives member dentists who are looking to expand their professional speaking opportunities a chance to present a one-hour lecture at the Annual Session. Presenters will have the opportunity to be seen by scouts from other dental meetings, and will be promoted on the Annual Session website and listed in the on-site Official Guide.

Speaker applications must be submitted online by June 29. The Council on ADA Sessions will review all proposals, and select and notify presenters by July 16. New Speaker Stage presenters are responsible for their own registration, housing and travel arrangements, as well as all expenses incurred. Presenters will not be compensated by the ADA.
