Welcome to ASDA's Advocacy Track guide. By answering a series of questions, you'll determine the most appropriate activities to take on in support of your chapter's advocacy efforts.
Let's get started...
Have you held an Advocacy event in the last six months?
That's great! Holding an advocacy event is a great way to mobilize students and raise awareness of issues important to organized dentistry.
Do you have a budget for more advocacy events?
There are a variety of events you can put on for chapter members. ASDA holds a National Dental Student Lobby to bring together ASDA members from around the country to speak to lawmakers with a unified voice.
Does your school attend National Dental Student Lobby Day?
ASDA's Lobby Day is an important part of your chapter's advocacy activities. Let's talk about your chapter's relationship with your state dental organization.
Does your school attend State Lobby Day?
Your chapter is well on its way to advocacy excellence. An Advocacy Academy is a way to educate the broader membership at your chapter about legislative priorities, the basics of lobbying and the political process in general.
Do you host an advocacy academy?
Your chapter has the potential to be an advocacy powerhouse! You're putting together the building blocks for a comprehensive advocacy program that can make a difference.
Do you want to increase participation in your advocacy academy or host an unique event?
