Next Meeting:  January 28 at 12:00 Noon

Open Forum

The January membership meeting will be an open forum to discuss any topic that is on your mind or to ask any question you might want input on from the assembled association executives. Lori Benvin, Executive Director of the Northern Nevada Dental Society (NNDS) is scheduled to lead the discussion.

We have had questions and issues sent in from several attendees already. Dealing with crisis, associate membership issues, and Board and officer roles, (specifically assigning duties to first, second, and third vice presidents), are issues already teed up. Another item is whether to have an elected treasurer of an organization with little or no background, handling the daily organization.

The following additional subjects have been submitted for discussion:

1. Employee and Officer Expense Accounts

2. Implementing a Succession Plan

3. How Supplier Partners can better work with Association members.

a. How can we (as associate members) encourage and assist our Association members in using our present supplier member services?

b. What Suppliers are our Association using that are not Associate Members but should be encouraged to become members?

Lunch is included. Members $20, Nonmembers $30. We will videoconference between Bob Talley’s office at 8863 W. Flamingo R. Suite 102, Las Vegas in the south and Lori Benvin’s office at 161 Country Estates Circle, Suite 1B, in Reno.
