2013 Dues statements mailing this week; pay online today!

 Last November, we rolled out two programs aimed at making our members' lives a little easier — online dues payment, and a 12-month payment option. Paying your annual dues online is fast, easy and secure, and saves you time — there’s nothing to mail. The 12-month payment option makes membership easier on the wallet by allowing you to pay for your WSDA membership over the course of the year. 

Getting started is easy
Follow the Q&A below to pay online or enroll in the 12-month payment plan. Paper invoices should be arriving later this week, or early next week — If you still have not received your bill after the Thanksgiving holiday, please contact Laura Rohlman at laura@wsda.org, or (206) 973-5218.

Q: How do I pay my dues online?
A: Visit www.wsdasource.org and click on "Pay Dues Now".

Several Local Races Still Up For Grabs

This was a unique year for the Washington State Legislature as both Republicans and Democrats battled for an astonishing 27 open seats (19 House, 8 Senate).

Democrats held a 27-22 advantage over Republicans in the Senate heading into Election Day. As of Thursday afternoon, the only Senate race yet to be determined was in Southwest Washington’s 17th Legislative District. Tim Probst (D-Vancouver) is hanging on to a narrow lead over incumbent Don Benton (R-Vancouver). If Probst, who previously served in the House of Representatives, can hang on to his 100 vote lead, Democrats will preserve their 27 seats in the Senate.

NEW AT THE 2013 PNDC - VIRTUAL GRAFFITI WALL

 

New this year! The Pacific Northwest Dental Conference (PNDC) will have a Virtual Graffiti Wall sponsored by Phillips Sonicare. The Graffiti Wall is an 8’ x 15’ video wall (watch it here!) that allows attendees to take giant-sized photo of themselves, then use virtual spray paint to draw on their own photos, create custom backgrounds, or make giant works of art. Their creations are printed instantly  and given to participants. Phillips Sonicare has sponsored the photo booth in the past, and is excited to bring this exciting, new activity to the PNDC. Looks like fun — the Graffiti Wall will be in the lobby of the Meydenbauer Center during the conference, come check it out!
