Hauling in the Hardware

Let's hear it for the MDA! Our members have put us in the winner's circle. Last week at the ADA Membership Recruitment and Retention Conference in Chicago, our state won awards for "Greatest Net Gain in Membership", "Greatest Net Gain of New Dentists" and the "Most Improved Retention Rate!" Each of the awards is for a state association with 1,001 to 2,000 members.
This was our crew, representing in style, from left to right: Dr. Vince Rapini, yours truly, Laura Breeden, and Dr. Michael Hoffman.
Thanks to each and every MDA member for their continued membership and support of the tripartite and thanks to members who invite a colleague to join and our component societies who do a great job with their recruitment and retention efforts!
A special thanks to Mandy Lewis, MDA Membership and Meeting Manager. She's done a lot of the heavy lifting that got us to this point and she should have been there to receive the awards but she had kindly passed this year so that I could experience the scene. Kudos, Mandy!
My comrades above are all from the Greater St Louis Dental Society. We had a and fun time learning about trends and best practices as we worked together to grow our membership even more. I would love to have someone from every component join us next year so mark your calendars for April 5-6, 2013 and let's bring home even more hardware!
