I want to thank you for being a member! It is the only organization for the Profession of Dental Hygiene.
Tiffany Grant and myself, just returned from a leadership conference, "Unleashing Your Potential" at the ADHA Headquarters in Chicago. We learned many new ways to help lead our association! We all have Potential! We all need to Unleash that Potential!
Do you have 5 minutes a month to make a few phone calls to potential members? Do you have 5 minutes a week to send out emails to encourage your local dental hygiene students! Do you have 5 minutes a day to sip on a cup of coffee and realize that the money you saved, not drinking your Starbucks coffee, pays for your membership?
So if you want to utilize your potential for MDHA, please contact myself or any officer or your local component. What can you do to help MDHA Conversely, what would you like MDHA to do for you?
This September, all potential members received, a postcard from MDHA asking for their contact information so we can keep them informed on pertinent information about their profession. So if you know hygienists that are not members, please ask them to join ADHA or at least go to MDHA.org and give us their information!
So I want to ask for your support as a new board of directors and officers begin the 60th year of MDHA! Yes, in 1958, MDHA was established and so in October (19-20th) at our Annual Session (in our new location: Springfield), MDHA will CELEBRATE!!! So make sure to mark off your calendar for this special event! Also, February 14th, is Lobby Day. We need to have all hygienists meet with their legislators. What a better way to celebrate Valentine's Day, to inform the legislators about with the profession that you love!
So are you ready to Unleash your Potential and Celebrate MDHA? Then I hope to see you at the State Capitol and at the Annual Session in 2018! We are focusing on the Future!
Sincerely, Linda Hoffmann, RDH, BS MDHA President 2017-18 firstname.lastname@example.org (660) 620-0809 text/phone
