Speaker/Room Hosts at the PNDC
Being a host is a great way to receive free CDE, free parking, and free meals at the Pacific Northwest Dental Conference this June. There are two programs open to WSDA member dentists and their staff — speaker host and room host. Each has separate responsibilities but the same great benefits. Any member of the WSDA member dentist’s team can participate in the room host program, but speaker hosts are generally filled by WSDA member dentists.
As a host at the conference, you will be reimbursed for 25% of the cost of the full conference badge for each lecture you host. Host four lectures and you can attend the conference for free! You’ll also receive CDE for the lectures you host, free parking on the day you host and you’ll be free to use the VIP lounge to relax and enjoy complimentary breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages.
The required tasks are easy, with a short list of responsibilities that includes getting the speaker to the correct room, introducing the speaker to the audience, serving as the point person for any audio-visual needs, sharing complimentary meals with the speaker, assisting the room host as needed, and staying for the duration of the presentation.
Being a speaker host is a fantastic opportunity to increase your face-time with one of the country’s most influential and sought-after speakers while helping the PNDC to run smoothly. Your work behind the scenes as a host makes the conference one of the best in the nation — and it’s a lot of fun..
If you’re not as social or are a dental team member and want to participate and reap the benefits of hosting — being a room host may be just the ticket for you. Room hosts monitor the classrooms, staff the door, greet attendees (and make sure they have the proper credentials to attend), and work to maximize the room space and seating. Following the presentation they scan membership cards for WSDA member attendees, hand out CDE verification forms, and assist the speaker host as needed.
Signing up for the program is easy —review the host schedule and fill out the form. If you have questions you may contact Craig Mathews at (800) 448-3368 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
