ADEA is pleased to announce the relocation of the Association's headquarters to the recently completed Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) building. The AAMC officially opened the doors to its new headquarters at 655 K Street NW, in Washington, D.C., in May 2014. Effective January 1, 2015, ADEA will be located on the 8th floor of the AAMC office building.
ADEA and the AAMC have long been strategically aligned regarding key issues on a national level. Sharing a space opens a door to new opportunities, while enhancing existing collaborations on interprofessional education initiatives, mutual diversity programs including the Summer Medical and Dental Education Program and joint faculty and student resources such as MedEdPORTAL® and the AAMC/ADEA Dental Loan Organizer and Calculator.
Following a twelve month search for a new office space, the AAMC building was selected by the ADEA Board of Directors as the optimal location to accommodate ADEA's growth and strategic goals—fostering the Association's "individual efforts to benefit the collective whole." The move will place ADEA in close proximity to Capitol Hill and the resurging area around the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
ADEA and its members in the dental education community will have access to the AAMC's two-story learning center and conferencing facility. Designed to foster collaboration through innovative use of space, including a 200-person multipurpose room and eight additional conference rooms, the building design emphasizes natural light and features a rooftop terrace and café for staff and member functions. It represents one of the most significant redevelopment investments in the long-underserved Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood.
