Dear NDAA Annual Session attendees:
Thank you so much for attending our Annual
Session this year. We had a great turn out. It was a fun meeting, and I was so glad that the weather decided to cooperate
with us. I hope you all enjoyed the educational sessions, the scrub fashion show, and the opportunity to mingle with your
fellow Nebraska dental assistants.
I would like to give a HUGE thank you to Nichole Berney, NDAA President-Elect,
for coordinating the educational sessions and to Darlene Mundt, Local Arrangements chairperson, for setting up all hotel arrangements
and conference rooms. Also, a BIG thank you for everyone else who contributed to the success of this annual session. It was
worth all of your hard work :).
In the upcoming weeks, you will be receiving a survey. Please give us your
honest feedback, so that we can make next year's Annual Session even better! And, as always, if you would like to contact
me personally with any of your questions, comments, or concerns please do so. Lastly, I would again like to extend the opportunity
to anyone who is interested in becoming involved with NDAA, please let me know! I would love to help you become as involved
as you would like to be. My email address is email@example.com or you call me at 402-738-4726.
