ADA Webinar Series
R & R 365: Keep the Conversation Going!
One thing that we hear each year at the ADA Annual Conference on Membership Recruitment and Retention is how much attendees love talking to each other and sharing membership successes and challenges with membership peers from across the country.
Well you spoke and we listened! Beginning in May, the ADA Membership Outreach team will implement a webinar series titled R&R365: Keep the Conversation Going! The webinars will occur on a quarterly basis and will feature topics identified, as most significant, by attendees at the 2013 R & R conference. The purpose is to have opportunities throughout the year for states and components to “keep the conversation going” about recruitment and retention efforts that are pertinent to enhancing membership growth and improving members satisfaction. Mark your calendars!
