My first NLC was in 2012 – yes that one, the first one ever! And I am also lucky enough to remember why we created the ASDA National Leadership Conference. The conversation went like this, “what if we pooled all our resources together into one giant conference to create a like-no-other program for our members?” Abracadabra (and a lot of hard work) – the NLC experience was born!
Since then ASDA has presented five dynamic NLC’s to deliver, in my opinion, the highest leadership and personal development available for the dental student.
I am going to give you five more reasons to attend ASDA NLC 2017:
1) Three general session speakers that will WOW you
This year our general session speakers are the BEST! From a social entrepreneur with a passion for making a difference, to a heart-felt recovery story and a way for you to become your own HERO, you’re not going to want to miss any of the general sessions!
2) Address chapter and personal leadership improvement in one place
Very few conferences provide support for both personal and organizational development. To get the most out of all that NLC offers, organize your leaders, divide up the sessions and attack the proposed agenda with a game plan.
3) Five tracks for your choosing
- Career Planning
- Leadership Fundamentals
- Personal Development and Wellness
- ASDA Chapter Management
4) Connect with leaders from all over the country
ASDA does many things great– especially connecting like-minded, highly motivated individuals. Keep these connections and draw on them now and in the future!
5) Better yourself
The NLC planning committee developed the agenda with sessions that are all focused on your personal and professional development. Take advantage of that opportunity!
November will be here soon! ASDA’s National Leadership Conference will take place Nov. 17-19 in Chicago. We encourage you to register by Aug. 28 to save $26 per person. Visit the NLC website for registration information.
We cannot wait to see you here in Chicago!
