Get Involved With Your Association!
There are dozens of ways you can get involved with GDA activities!
The Georgia Dental Association has multiple pathways for member dentists who are interested in becoming more involved in the activities of their professional association. Check out these avenues:
Task Forces: The GDA is forming a task force to discuss matters related to dental Medicaid and PeachCare for Kids, and interact with the state Department of Community Health. Contact GDA staff member Stephanie Lotti at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are potentially interested in serving. The GDA is also interested in hearing from general dentists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons who might have an interest in serving on a task force being formed by the Department of Community Health on opioid use and abuse in Georgia. Please let Stephanie know of your interest in serving in this area as well.
Lunch & Learn: The GDA is seeking dentists to talk about the value of membership during lunch and learn events at the Dental College of Georgia in Augusta in the new year. Contact GDA staff member Katherine Torbush at email@example.com if you can take time to speak with our dental students in 2017.
ADA Delegation: An election will be held in December 2016 at the House of Delegates for an At-Large position on the GDA delegation to the American Dental Association. Candidate CVs are due into the GDA office November 18 to the attention of Patrice Williams firstname.lastname@example.org.
ADA Annual Session: Speaking of the ADA, the Georgia Dental Association would like to hear from members interested in volunteering at the ADA Annual Session that takes place in Atlanta in October 2017. Email your name to Dr. Sidney Tourial at email@example.com or Dr. Karyn Stockwell at firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers will receive free ADA session registration and other perks.
District Events: We have multiple district continuing education and legislative events taking place this fall, and are already signing up volunteers for our six 2017 GDA LAW Day events. Please see the GDA calendar (click here for the full calendar) for dates, times, and locations. We have many ways for you to become involved!
