WSDA Leadership Institute

What is the Leadership Institute? 

The Leadership Institute was designed to foster new leadership in organized dentistry through an intensive list of activities and meetings. The program provides an opportunity for WSDA members to gain an understanding of organized dentistry at the State level.

Participants will be paired with WSDA Board members who will shepherd them through several activities tailored to developing emerging leaders from within our membership. Mentors and participants will be encouraged to meet privately during the year to discuss perspectives, leadership issues and questions, and to further enhance the collaborative nature of the leadership process. The programming goal is intended to educate and illuminate the leadership process, without overwhelming participants with too many activities. During the year, all program costs will be paid by WSDA, including airfare, hotels, meals and transportation.
