Become a Delegate
Each year, the Colorado Dental Association sponsors an Annual Session. The Annual Session is held in such charming mountain resorts as Vail, Steamboat Springs and Telluride and features educational lectures, exhibits and family activities. However, the most critical function of the CDA Annual Function is the House of Delegates. MDDS maintains a vital voice on the delegate floor with 61 positions, serving as CDA’s largest component. In addition to receiving relevant updates on the legislation surrounding the integrity of organized dentistry, this meeting gives members an opportunity to vote for resolutions that shape the context of MDDS’s bylaws.
Being an MDDS delegate is an invaluable way for you to participate and make a difference, as well as enjoying an educational, informative and enjoyable weekend in the mountains. Our goal is to have 100% delegate representation, so please join us as an MDDS delegate and encourage your colleagues to become involved as well. Details are available by contacting (303) 488-9700.

MDDS Board of Directors
