ASDA policy reflects the topics and issues that are important to us as dental students, and we can carry these with us as we move forward in our careers.
ASDA’s Annual Session, March 4-7 in St. Louis, will bring together students from every U.S. dental school to vote on association policy and elect leaders. Beyond the business of the association, it’s an opportunity to connect with your peers, learn more about hot topics in dentistry and celebrate chapter successes.
How do you connect what’s happening with ASDA at the national level to what you’re doing within your chapter and district? If you’re attending Annual Session 2019, you’re already taking the first step toward bridging that gap. Held Feb. 27 – March 2 in Pittsburgh — the “City of Bridges” — Annual Session will help you build a pathway toward future success and connections between your peer and national ASDA communities.
At Annual Session 2019, held Feb. 27 – March 2 in Pittsburgh, the House of Delegates will elect ASDA’s 2019-20 Executive Committee and speaker of the House of Delegates. On the first day the House meets, Executive Committee and speaker candidates present their platforms to the House.

Even though most educational materials from 1974 belongs in either a museum or an episode of the Wonder Years, I think this one is worth keeping around.
As Annual Session 2014 draws nearer, I want everyone to think about how ASDA’s policies can more reflect YOUR voice, the member voice. Read on to find out how to get your resolution to Disneyland.
