Almost a month ago I began to feel fall in the air. For many families it means trips to Apple Hill, school carnivals and enjoying the leaves turning colors in the yard. For me this year, it has meant countertops loaded with ripe tomatoes and learning how to process pickles! When we plant the garden, we don’t always anticipate the bounty to be had when all the fruit ripens….and so it is with planting the seeds for growing a flourishing dental hygiene career. You put your heart and soul into your education, you continue to fertilize it with knowledge and experience….and along the way your investment turns into some truly precious experiences, rich with satisfaction in the fruits of your labor. With patience, a bit of stinky fertilizer, and the right kitchen gadgets, unexpectedly, opportunities may arise…and it is wise to be ready for those moments.
Can you honestly say you have connected with your professional association and taken advantage of all it has to offer you? The upcoming Nevada Dental Hygienists’ Association House of Delegates is around the corner on October 4-5 in Reno, Nevada at the Atlantis…a terrific opportunity to cultivate some relationships with fellow professionals passionate about the same things you are.
So I’m writing to say, participation in your professional membership association can be a basic and elementary move in being ready for the future of your career. Whether a veteran seasoned hygienist, or a freshly plucked grad, If you haven’t registered for the October 4-5 Seminar and NDHA House of Delegates, this is an excellent time to SAVE MONEY AND REGISTER EARLY!
After the hard work of the House of Delegates, be sure to attend the casual Social hosted by Sigma Phi Alpha-Delta Tau. I believe there is no better end to a day of resolutions and a review of the bylaws than a gathering of great minds in relaxation. Best to thoroughly enjoy the friendships made possible in this profession----
--And to always have plenty of canning jars on hand!!
