The Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting™ has a well-earned reputation for continuing excellence in dentistry thanks to the efforts of our member volunteers.
Help CDS maintain its standard by volunteering as a Room Chair or Presiding Chair.
Regular and associate members are invited to participate. And if you are a dental student, please consider becoming a Student Chair.
Presiding Chairs greet our speakers in our registration office, escort them to meals and then to their rooms, and introduce them to their audiences. Room Chairs verify tickets and help manage crowds.
The primary responsibilities of Student Chairs are to verify tickets and help manage crowds.
