Past accomplishments of the Editorial Board:
- Contour: ASDA launched its premier magazine, Contour, in January 2017. The Editorial Board and staff worked with a consultant and held focus groups with members to determine the feasibility and preferences for a new publication. The Editorial Board incorporated the best of ASDA News and Mouth to create one flagship magazine for the association. Contour will publish 10x/year, with combined issues in June/July and November/December. Digital issues are available at ASDAnet.org/contour.
- Video Blog Subcommittee: The Editorial Board created a subcommittee to develop brief 1-2 minute-videos to use on the blog. Five members were appointed to the committee and several videos have been posted on Mouthing Off.
- Photo pool: ASDA put out a call for members to join our photo pool to provide high-quality photos that can be used in publications, website and marketing materials. Each month, members are asked to submit photos pertaining to that theme of Contour and winners are featured in that issue. To become part of the pool, go to ASDAnet.org/photo-pool.aspx.
- Diversity in ASDA's publications: The Editorial Board launched a diversity series in Contour to advance awareness of the underrepresented demographics in dental school. Featured topics include: race, gender, sexual orientation and disabilities.
