Thanks to Lori Benvin, Executive Director of the Northern NV Dental Society for a great roundtable open forum.

Lori Benvin, Executive Director of the Northern Nevada Dental Society (NNDS) led the discussion.

We have had questions and issues sent in from several attendees, 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 discussed was whether to have an elected
treasurer of an organization with little or no background, handling the daily organization. General
consensus was this was not a good idea. We discussed crisis planning, setting up a succession plan, and
how to work with our associate members to benefit both organizations.
