Speaking on his nomination, Meier said:

“ADAA members represent an extraordinary breadth and depth of expertise and excellence through their programs, and I am honored to continue to support them as part of the ADAA’s leadership. I look forward to continue working with Executive Director Maureen Bray, my colleagues on the Board of Directors, and the entire membership to amplify their critical role within our industry.”
