2013 represents a standout year for our District. From the implementation of the ﬁrst District 9 cabinet and growing popularity of our Facebook page to the sheer volume of national leaders, and two 2013-‐14 EC candidates — District 9 is well represented! Speaking for the D9 cabinet — it has been our greatest pleasure to serve you all. From the many many conversations shared with your chapter leaders — we have truly enjoyed learning about the wonderful things you do. We have listened to your struggles and concerns and we have celebrated your victories. This year saw chapters rise to brand new levels while others focused on rebuilding their foundation. ASDA would be nothing without the hard work ethic, creativity, and enthusiasm that you all oﬀer. Each individual has their own story to share and I cannot wait to learn more from you this weekend. ASDA Fever is alive and well within our District and I hope you all enjoy the weekend your D9 leaders have planned! Take the time to meet someone new, share an idea or two, and learn from the assortment of incredible personalities you will meet this weekend. Leadership is an evolving concept based oﬀ your own personal experiences — here’s hoping to making the most of our time together!

“How Now To Fail Miserably at Private Practice”, Dr. Chris Salierno
We have been trained to be outstanding clinicians, not savvy business owners. Many of us are afraid of or simply ignore the business end of our profession. We're unsure of how to read a Proﬁt and Loss statement or motivate our staﬀ. But leading a successful practice doesn't have to remain a mystery. This course will discuss the most common mistakes we make that can slowly and silently ruin our oﬃces. The audience will be armed with a suite of best practices and practical tips.
“Occlusion Made Ridiculously Simple”, Dr. Chris Salierno
Here's everything you wanted to know about occlusion but were afraid to ask. The mystery of the lines and dots left by articulating paper will ﬁnally be revealed. We'll look at both natural teeth and implant occlusal schemes and why they're diﬀerent.
"Traditional, Corporate and Everything In Between”, Dr. David Rice
Dentistry's an amazing profession and the great news is...you have tremendous options. Learn how to gain the edge and take charge of your future...no matter what you choose!
“The Leader Within Me”, Dr. Raymond Cohlmia
Dental school may make you feel pressured, as if your hands are tied, like you have somewhat of a “clouded future.” Well, let’s take a diﬀerent track talking about leadership, motivation, and possibly discover more of yourself than you thought. This presentation is designed to help you take a diﬀerent look at your school career, your membership in ASDA and the ADA, and thoughts as a future practitioner. Ultimately, how to make a diﬀerence for those I serve… and myself!
“Dentistry: It's just like Dating!”, Dr. David Rice
Clinical excellence is a must and frankly, our patients expect it. Learn how to develop excellent patient communication to develop true practice success.
“Decision Tree”, Dr. Adam Burr, Pacific Dental Services
This course is designed to guide students on how to navigate the decision-‐making process as they contemplate life after dental school. Dr. Burr will discuss his path after dental school and what factors inﬂuenced his decisions along the way.
“Success as an Associate”, Dr. Kenneth Burson, Pacific Dental Services
This course is designed to help students learn the key elements that will help them achieve success as an associate. Dr. Burson will share some of the tips that helped him get on the path to ownership early in his career as well as the attributes he looks for in the associates he hires for his practice.
“Navigating Dental School Negotiations”, Dr. Colleen Greene
Graduating on-‐time from dental school requires the cooperation of many outside parties who are not at all required to work with you. How do you meet all of your personal goals while also meeting the needs of patients, classmates, faculty and administrators? We will discuss the art and relevancy of communication skills in both the student clinic and "real world" clinical settings. Recognize how to deal with diﬀerent personalities and authority levels eﬀectively.
“How your leadership style affects your chapter, practice and team”, Dr. Alex Barton
The style you are developing as a leader in your chapter will transcend beyond this role to your future practice, community and our profession. Set your current and future teams up for success by following the guidelines set by the servant leadership model and the tips we will discuss in this presentation.

The Alpine Villa sits at 9405 ft. in altitude. You will need to drink lots of water while here, if you aren’t use to high altitude. Limiting alcohol use will also help. Some common effects are headaches, body aches, sleeplessness, shortness of breath, hunger, or loss of appetite.
THIRD FLOOR The water at the Alpine Villa is some of the best water on the planet! Ok, maybe I’m biased but you do not need to bring cases of bottled water to drink while here. But since many of you ask, yes, there is a filter!
2345 TIGER ROAD BRECKENRIDGE, CO 80424
New to Breck this year! Breckenridge has opened the largest terrain expansion in North America in the 2013-14 ski season. Be sure to check out Peak 6!! Perfect above tree line skiing for the intermediate skier or rider.
A few things to remember before you leave!! If you joined the group rental, please remember to bring a check or credit card to reimburse OU ASDA for your rental!! The rentals will be ready bright and early Friday at Carver’s Ski Shop, 203 N. Main Street in Breckenridge. It’s right by the entrance to the gondola.
For those of you that ordered ski passes, there is a pick-‐up area at the base of Peak 8 where you can pick them up in person. This is right by the main food court area and where most everyone ends up eating lunch during ski days.
Don’t forget a swimsuit if you plan on enjoying the Roman bath or sauna, and gym clothes if you would rather work out or play basketball in the gym.
Snow Much Fun
You are signiﬁcantly closer to the sun at 10,000 feet. Put on plenty of sun block, moisturize your lips and cover exposed skin where possible. Wear UV protective goggle lens or sunglasses. It’s also helpful to have a helmet when skiing if possible. (It also seems to be getting “cooler” to wear a helmet, you deﬁnitely won’t be the only one!)
Drink plenty of water, especially on the ﬁrst day, to For skiing/boarding: Don’t forget headphones if you minimize any high altitude sickness. Take an want to jam out while you ski. Also getting a few “hot ibuprofen or aspirin to help the headaches. Take it hands” to stick in your gloves is never a bad idea... easy for the ﬁrst day.
