The New England Masters Study Club was created following the completion of Track I of the New England MasterTrack Program in 1996.  It was conceived as the natural evolution of the AGD Mastership, allowing its members to continue their high level of continuing dental education.

In its current iteration, membership is open to all those who have either attained Academy of General Dentistry Mastership, or have completed at least 50% of an approved AGD Master Track program.

The organization is run by an executive committee consisting of President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer, all serving a two year term, elected by the membership.

Because of the status of its membership, the NEMSC attracts the best lecturers to its meetings, which are held bianually.

The NEMSC holds meetings in the fall and spring of the year throughout the New England area.  The locations and course content are decided upon by the membership.

The NEMSC is a not for profit study club, and as such has been able to keep the costs of meetings and annual dues to a bare minimum.  Attending is very affordable, and cost per hour of c.e. is the lowest available anywhere. 

Through our commitment, experience, and expertise, The New England Masters Study Club has established itself as the penultimate source for continuing dental education for the AGD Master.  We have developed, and continue to develop a relationship with our members that will last a lifetime!

All of this, and a cost per credit hour that cannot be surpassed.

Fellow Masters, 

I hope this email finds you all happy and well as we come to the end of 2018!  As I begin my second year as President of this esteemed study club, I am excited to share some upcoming opportunities that we have within the organization.
 
First, we are pleased to have online registration and payment of dues and tuition fees!  Hurray technology!  The dues for 2019 can be paid by clicking the link on this website.
 
Secondly, as many of you who have attended recent meetings know, we have had some discussion as to how to encourage participation at the Board level.  We have many talented individuals in the group who are willing to contribute, but not all feel comfortable with the commitment that is required with the current structure of the Board.  Therefore, after much discussion, the Board will be putting forward a proposed By law change prior to our March meeting.  Currently, the Executive Board is composed of Secretary, Vice President (who also acts as the CE chairperson), President, Immediate Past President and Treasurer.  The Treasurer is a 4 year position, and they can be reelected for a second four year term if they would like.  The Secretary, Vice President and President all hold each office for 2 years, and then ‘move up’ to the next position.  The challenge we have found with this over the years is that by holding a position for two years and then moving on makes it difficult to have the time to truly understand and feel comfortable with the position you are in before having to learn a new position.  Also, it requires someone coming onto the Board to essentially make an 8 year commitment.   Our proposal is to move the Secretary to a fixed 4 year position, like the Treasurer, which can be re elected, but does not require the individual to move onto the Vice President and President position.  We will add a position of CE Coordinator to our Board, which will also be a fixed 4 year position, which can also be re elected.  That will leave the roles of Vice President and President staying as 2 year terms, with the understanding that the Vice President will move into the position of President. The proposed By laws will be distributed to the membership prior to the 30 day notice as required to hold such a vote.  The Board does welcome any comments or feedback any of you have with those proposed changes. 
 
Lastly, we have some AMAZING courses lined up for future meetings.  We are very excited about our spring course - Dr. Stephen Chu will be lecturing on Mindfulness in Dental Implant Planning and Restoring March 22-24th in Burlington, MA.   The combination of such an amazing speaker at such a bargain price - we are anticipating this course to SELL OUT quickly, so please register as soon as possible. 
 
October 25-27th 2019 we have Dr. Lou Graham speaking on Technological and Geriatric Challenges in the 21st Century. 

March 13-14th 2020 – Gregg Kinzer and Vince Kockich – exact topic still being decided upon. 

I want to thank again Dr. James Marshall, our current Vice President, who has worked very hard to put together this fantastic lineup of speakers.  Its very impressive for a study club, especially in keeping in line with our very low membership dues and tuition costs.
 
To conclude, I am as always, honored to be a part of this amazing group.  The depth of passion and knowledge that everyone has for our profession is inspiring.  At every meeting, I truly feel like I take away as much from discussion with my fellow NEMSC members as I do the speaker.  As current President, I am thankful for the guidance and support that I have from our many Past Presidents who are still very much active and engaged.  And I am looking forward to seeing our membership continue to grow with those who have recently achieved the goal of Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry.

Sincerely,

 

Hillary Caruso, DMD MAGD, President
New England Masters Study Club
