ADSO Committees & Task Forces

The ADSO offers members various opportunities to get involved in the organization and make a lasting impact on the industry. ADSO committees are the driving force behind the strategic direction and future of the ADSO. Committee members develop real and lasting connections with colleagues across the industry and provide input on critical programs and initiatives and help bring value to the membership.

The ADSO also forms temporary task forces and working groups to advise and provide direction on emerging initiatives. Current task forces are looking at issues including workforce, collaboration with dental schools and students, and Medicaid.

Learn more about ADSO’s committees below. Reach out to membership@theadso.org if you are interested in learning more or getting involved.

The Government Affairs Committee provides valuable input and directs the association’s advocacy efforts undertaken on state and federal levels. This committee is open to contacts from DSO member organizations and works to ensure the ADSO is represented effectively.

The Membership Committee works to promote and enhance member value for the organization. Whether through creation of new programs and initiatives, selection of affinity programs, or online webinars on subjects impacting the DSO industry, the Membership Committee drives member value for the organization. Due to the sensitive nature of its work to review ADSO membership applications it is a closed committee, only seeking new members as current members cycle off. The group is always interested in hearing feedback and opinions from members, so please reach out if you would like to be connected.
