Leadership Meetings & International Conventions

Font Size:

AO conducts an international convention and leadership meetings each year.  Any student who has attended convention will attest that convention is an opportunity not to be missed.  

AO also provides leadership training during the calendar year---combining students, young alumni (that's eventually you!), and alumni dentists.  Our members are bright, engaged people who want to learn leadership techniques to use at their chapters and eventually on a larger scale with AO.

2015 International Convention in Washington, DC
December 24, 2015 - December 29, 2015

Students may attend the international council meetings as delegates.  Each student chapter must have the roster, dues, and officer list turned into headquarters by December 1.  Please visit the Membership page for the forms. 

The AO constitution outlines a travel reimbursement structure for student delegates.  Depending on the chapter size, a student delegate may receive up to $500 in airfare reimbursement.  The student is expected to write a summary of his or her convention experience that will be published in the spring Articulator.
