Officer & Trustee Elections


2023 WDA Trustee & Officer Term Chart 2015-2030 ADA 9th District Council Rotation Chart

Help guide the future and direction of your professional association by nominating yourself or a colleague for an open state or regional leadership position.

Applications from nominees are now being accepted for the WDA Officer Corps and At-Large Trustee. The 2019 WDA House of Delegates adopted an updated structure for the WDA Board of Trustees. In 2020, the Board began transitioning to the new format, which will ultimately include 10 regional trustees (two from each region), one student trustee representing Marquette University School of Dentistry and three at-large trustee positions.

Nominate yourself or a colleague for president-elect, vice president, editor, treasurer, speaker of the House, or for a regional or at-large trustee. Nominations for these seats are not permitted from the House floor. Please submit CV and application to Mark Paget at mpaget@wda.org for vetting by the House Nominating Committee.

Officer Corps

Term: President-elect, vice president and speaker of the House serve one year. These seats are elected by the House.
