157th Annual Session will be held at the Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort and Conference Center on Friday, September 10th and Saturday, September 11th 2021. Registration will open on June 9, 2021.
Annual Session gives members the opportunity to participate in the decision making process of the House of Delegates, exchange ideas and join colleagues in business and social aspects of the society.
Other dental organizations and specialty groups, including DENT-IL-PAC, Governor’s Club, Illinois State Dental Society Foundation, Illinois Academy of General Dentistry and International/American College of Dentistry hold meetings in conjunction with the ISDS Annual Session.
In 2021, the election for ISDS Secretary will take place in an “open year,” meaning that members from both the Chicago and Downstate districts may run for the office. Two accomplished members have declared their candidacy for ISDS Secretary in 2021: Dr. John Kozal of Summit Argo, and Dr. Shafa Amirsoltani of Elmwood Park.
During the year of their candidacy, candidates are expected to address the ISDS membership during the ISDS Capitol Conference (April) and the ISDS Annual Session (September). Each candidate for a particular office will be invited to a specific district, component, or branch meeting to ensure an equal opportunity to meet with ISDS members.
