New Year - New Focus
Posted by Paul on 1/3/2014 8:07:00 AM
Welcome to 2014! Everyone loves a fresh start. Don't believe me? Just try to get a parking spot at your local gym. Ha! Due to some shifting in job duties, my gym this year will be the MDA's foundations. My new title is Foundation and Outreach Director. I will focus on working with the MDA and Well Being Foundation boards to grow both groups and execute a variety of projects - primarily MOMOM. It feels like a good fit and I'm excited. Plus I will keep outreach on my plate as I enjoy traveling to be at member events and to work with a wide range of MDA related audiences. Hopefully that keeps my blog filled with photos and updates.
Why not make 2014 a banner year for yourself when it comes to organized dentistry? Just one small level of engagement from everyone enhances the vitality of your association. No need to skyrocket toward being an ADA delegate. Take a baby step first. You can recommit to a local study club. Perhaps you engage with your component and serve on a committee or help with an event. This may be the year you and your staff attend MOMOM. You can come represent your profession at Legislative Day (2/26). We will show you around the Capitol. Or you can earmark www.modental.org
. and see all that's going on and jump in when you are ready. The bottom line is although I believe your dues deliver exceptional value and benefit, we all know the maxim that you get out of something what you put into it. This year put a little of yourself into your association and see what you get out. It's likely to be very rewarding to you and beneficial to others.
Happy New Year!
