WSDA Leadership Institute

Leadership Institute 2021 2022

The WSDA Leadership Institute is a program designed to foster new leadership in organized dentistry by getting participants involved in a variety of WSDA activities and meetings. The program provides an opportunity for WSDA members, in small cohorts of five to seven participants, to gain a better understanding of organized dentistry at the state level and to build relationships with current WSDA leaders. Participants are paired with WSDA Board of Directors or Past President mentors who shepherd them through several activities tailored to developing emerging leaders from within our membership.
