Consistent and clear communication is the key to a successful chapter. It is important that you communicate often and use various channels to keep your members informed and involved. It is also important that others at your school and in your community recognize the efforts of your chapter. This page provides resources to assist you in your communications efforts.
You'll also find the ASDA, Engage and Gold Crown logos, along with instructions for their proper use.
Chapters can download the ASDA letterhead template for correspondence with faculty, advertisers, exhibitors and your community. Simply add your chapter's contact information and the content of your letter and you are ready to send.

ASDA's Logo and Usage Guidelines
The ASDA logo shall be used in its primary color (blue, Pantone 541, CYMK 100 57 0 38) whenever possible and always as a unit, with the associated name spelled out. If necessary, the logo can be used in black or reversed out of a darker color, for example a white logo on a black background.
Chapters should create their own brand and logo, but are encouraged to incorporate ASDA’s logo. The ASDA logo should not be distorted and should be placed above or to the left of all other logos. Predental chapters should include the term “predental” before their chapter name to distinguish between predoctoral and predental chapters at the same school. Please note: ASDA’s style guidelines are to use the word predental as one word (no hyphen).
Guidelines for Use
- Use the unmodified logo
- Allow space around the logo (minimum 0.5 in.)
- Place the logo on a single color background
- Change the color of the logo
- Distort the logo dimensions
- Place the logo on a multicolor or patterned background
- Use a hyphen in "predental"
