This question already has an answer here:

I was wondering how can I set globally itemize lists to use dashes instead of bullets using the memoir class. Right now I have to always do:

\begin{itemize}[-]
...
\end{itemize}

You can use \renewcommand to change the default behavior of the itemize environment:

\renewcommand{\labelitemi}{--}

But if you do this for one level, you'll want to do it for all levels For example:

\renewcommand{\labelitemii}{+}
\renewcommand{\labelitemiii}{$\circ$}
\renewcommand{\labelitemiv}{$\bullet$}

The best place to do this would be in your preamble.

Possibly \renewcommand{\labelitemi}{---} (in the preamble). –  egreg Mar 28 '13 at 15:29
