Announcement from the CDHM

Posted by CDHM INFO On April - 19 - 2010

On behalf of The College of Dental Hygienists of Manitoba, I am announcing that Kellie Hildebrandt, Executive Director/Registrar has submitted her resignation effective July, 2010. I know that I speak for Council when I say that we will miss her strong initiative, valued skills and good working relationships that she brought to the position. Kellie will be truly missed by her friends and colleagues in Winnipeg, and we wish her the absolute best in her future as she and her family move back to Saskatoon.

Kellie has provided dedicated service to the College since 2007 when she was appointed as Interim Registrar, later being selected as Registrar, and more recently as her role and responsibilities expanded to Executive Director/Registrar. Kellie has been instrumental in implementing the vision of Council in building our organization including the initial registration, on-going renewals, the start-up of an official office, development of the Continuing Competency Program, public service TV announcements, and countless other projects.

CDHM Council has engaged the services of Legacy Bowes Group, a professional executive search firm to assist us through the process of identifying and selecting a new Executive Director/Registrar who will seamlessly continue the excellent work that Kellie has done. For information please contact Donna Bilodeau, Senior Consultant, Legacy Bowes Group at (204) 934-8825, or donna (at)

Respectfully submitted,
Mickey Emmons Wener
CDHM Council Chair
