DISTRICT 6/7 CONFERENCE
From January 14th to January 16th, 2022, the Michigan chapter of ASDA joined 5 other chapters in the midwest for the District 6 Conference. This was the first in-person district conference since 2019, and it was held in enemy territory - Columbus, Ohio! At the conference, our members interacted with other dental students from the different schools as we learned more about organized dentistry, advocacy, and diversity.
"I think every ASDA member should go at least once to really experience what ASDA represents not only at our chapter, but chapters around the country."
Anna Kelman, Fundraising Chair
What is one thing that you learned from the conference that you want to apply to our chapter?
After seeing all of the amazing awards different ASDA chapters in our district won, I certainly had some ideas for our own chapter! As fundraising chair, I’d like to do something like Marquette where they took a unique approach to marketing their fundraising events through Facebook profile pictures and used social media as a way to rack up participants!
