The ADSO has the critical mass to enact change. If your DSO is not an ADSO member, then your voice is not being included in a conversation that is going to determine what the future of the DSO business model looks like. Isn’t it time to join the conversation?
While working towards a better future for the DSO industry, the ADSO offers a long list of benefits to members. A few of the main benefits are the educational and networking opportunities, as well as board positions. No matter the size of the DSO, there is a space for their leadership on the ADSO board. Emerging groups are also invited to all their meetings which provide an invaluable opportunity to meet with industry leaders.
Visit with Christopher Badgley, ADSO Executive Director, and Luke LaLiberté, ADSO Director of Membership & Marketing, at the Henry Schein DSO Education Forum this week, May 17-18, 2019 at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV, to learn more about how the ADSO benefits emerging groups – helping them at every level of growth and development.
Christopher Badgley, Executive Director
Chris has extensive experience in government affairs and association management. After a successful career in sales and sales management, Badgley led the state government affairs function at Pfizer (formerly Wyeth) before moving to that industry’s trade association, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA); first as the Vice President of State Government Affairs, then as Senior Vice President Government and Public Affairs and as acting Deputy Chief of Staff, managing the pharmaceutical industry’s campaign to support passage of the Affordable Care Act. After serving as Senior Vice President Commercial Policy & State Government Affairs at CompTIA (formerly the Technology Association of America [TechAmerica]) and working on member recruitment and retention, as well as events and program development, Chris returned to the pharmaceutical industry, to represent Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. as Senior Director, Public Policy and Government Affairs. He has also served on several of the advocacy and public affairs professions’ executive committees and advisory boards.
Luke LaLiberté, Director of Membership & Marketing
Luke has been working in membership for most of his career. Starting in a customer service support role at a national nonprofit organization upon first moving to DC, he was promoted to a data management and processing-based role, then membership sales, finally landing in membership marketing and communication before transitioning to the team at ADSO. This has given him a broad perspective of the membership lifecycle which he leverages to continue developing the membership program at ADSO.
