Hello Alaska Dental Hygienists!
Save the date!
Our November 11th CE/business meeting, silent auction, and Election is just 3 months away! Our fabulous CE Committee will post information about the CE and registration closer to the event.
In the mean time, I would like to encourage Alaska DHA members to consider positions up for election on November 11th!
The positions up for election are: Delegate-term 2017-2019 and TWO voting Alaska DHA board member positions:
Treasurer for term 2017-2019 and Vice President/President Elect for the remainder of term 2016-2018 which then transitions to President of Alaska DHA for term 2018-2020.
Due to unforeseen life events, our current Vice President/President Elect, Carla Lindblom, has resigned. We wish her the best in all her endeavors!
All interested candidates must email me their candidate information (cover letter, preferably with picture) no later than October 15th to be added to the ballot and to share with membership. Candidates who do not email me their candidate information by the October 15th deadline will need to nominate themselves or be nominated by a current ADHA member in good standing on November 11th when given the opportunity to do so during the Alaska DHA business meeting. Candidates nominated from the floor will be considered as a “write in” candidate. A write in space will be provided on the ballot. A few minutes may be provided for candidates to share information about themselves to voting members in attendance during the Alaska DHA business meeting.
I personally want to encourage folks to become members and get involved and participate in your professional local and national association! We have a great time together and it’s a lot of fun at ADHA annual conference! The Alaska DHA covers travel/hotel costs to send Delegate’s to ADHA annual conference: 95th ADHA Conference is in Columbus, Ohio June 20-25th, 2018! I encourage current members in good standing (dues are paid and current) to join in the fun and consider positions up for election.
It is a fiduciary responsibility of the Alaska DHA to encourage, mentor, and create a leadership pipeline to sustain our association and continue moving forward year after year. Plus, we enjoy getting to know our fellow hygienists and working together towards a common goal!
Please email me, or any of our board members, if you have any questions about positions up for election or want to help out on a committee.
Board member emails can be found on our website: www.alaskadha.org
It is a pleasure serving you.
