Membership Recruitment and Retention
Member-to-member contact is the proven, most successful form of outreach. The Ohio Dental Association provides member dentists and local component societies with resources to help with recruitment and retention efforts.
The ODA Membership Recruitment and Retention Toolkit provides dentists and local component societies with resources such as scripts, talking points, and email templates for reaching out to non-members and non-renewed members about joining the tripartite.
The ODA offers a Membership Recruitment and Retention Workshop for local component societies where attendees will learn about local trends and challenges and participate in an outreach skills training session. This workshop will provide attendees with the skills and resources they need to successfully reach out to non-members and non-renewed members.
The ODA has launched the Membership Award Program for Success (MAP for Success) to reward component dental societies for effective outreach.
The ODA is offering component society recruitment grants for 2018 initiatives. A maximum of $2,000 will be awarded per grant. Applications are now being accepted.
