Vanguard Launches Microsite for NADP Conference

Vanguard has launched a microsite for the National Association of Dental Plans’ (NADP) upcoming annual conference – CONVERGE – utilizing a module from Higher Logic’s Connected Community.

“By adding the microsite module, NADP was able to create a separate community strictly for CONVERGE,” says Alicia Leonard, Client Strategist for Vanguard Technology. “The module has fantastic functionality. It is very easy to modify and configure.”

Through the CONVERGE microsite NADP is able to increase registrant engagement before and after the conference. The site allows NADP to post all presentations and documents in advance of the conference, host a discussion forum specific to the conference, and push information to event registrants.  NADP is utilizing the Connected Community event management module for CONVERGE registration.

NADP currently has the Higher Logic Connected Community platform integrated with his website,, which is a members-only site. The add-on microsite module allows them to create as many microsites as necessary to help build stronger communities among members.
