Be a part of it—volunteer!

The success of the ADA annual meeting depends on the dedication of an outstanding group of volunteers—people just like you!
The ADA Committee on Local Arrangements (CLA) provides an invaluable resource to the ADA by recruiting 300-400 volunteers to assist with the annual meeting. The CLA chair and subcommittee co-chairs are local dental leaders, some of whom you may know.

 Dr. Maria Lopez Howell     CLA Programs Committee Co-chair
 Dr. Karen Troendle  CLA Programs Committee Co-chair
