CDS executive director to step down

Randy Grove, executive director of the Chicago Dental Society, will step down on May 31, 2023, capping a 33-year career at the helm of the society.  The decision was made at the August 16, 2022, meeting of the Board of Directors.

The board will employ a search committee to direct the transition, evaluate candidates and offer recommendations for Mr. Grove’s replacement.

Selection by the Board of Directors will occur, currently without a predetermined time.

The Board will update the membership on the search later this year.

Mr. Grove joined CDS on December 11, 1989, as executive director.  He directs the 16-member staff that serves the 4,400 members of the organization.
