2021 Virtual Leadership Conference a Hit!
A record-breaking 177 energized and enthusiastic members gathered for the 2021 Virtual Leadership Conference Jan. 25 – 27 to set the course for the coming year and provide feedback for the next strategic plan.
The Opening Day presentations set the tone for this annual event. The Strategic Plan presentation tasked each volunteer group with answering three questions about NADP and strategic plan development. (See NADP Pulse). In addition, the Future of Dental Care Access Task Force presented an update highlighting its initial charter and potential outcomes and phases of discussion, which included:
- Consumer expectations
- Dental plan structure
- Dental care delivery
- Oral-overall health connection
Volunteer groups met the following day to plan how they will advance the dental benefits industry for 2021 and provide insight for the next strategic plan.
On Wednesday, attendees heard from Michaelle H. Knight, Ed.D on Focusing on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. The Leadership Conference ended with updates from each volunteer group about their plans for 2021.
