CDHM Amended By-laws

Posted by CDHM INFO On January - 18 - 2011

On October 23 2010 the CDHM held its Annual General Meeting (AGM). As per section 54(2) of The Dental Hygienists Act the by-laws may be amended and repealed ‘after notice is given in accordance with the by-laws, a by-law under section (1) may be amended or repealed by a majority of the members of the college

(a) present and voting at a general meeting; or
(b) voting in a mail vote or other method of voting conducted in accordance with the by-laws.

At the AGM the membership voted to amend the by-laws so that they now contain the most current version of the CDHA’s Code of Ethics.

A Code of Ethics is a document that is designed to set out acceptable behaviours that registrants of a profession are expected to incorporate into their practice. As well, a Code of Ethics can also increase confidence in a governing body by indicating to the public that registrants of the organization are committed to following basic ethical guidelines in the course of providing treatment.

Please find below the CDHM amended by-laws and the CDHA Code of Ethics:

New Members on the Board of Assessors

Posted by CDHM INFO On January - 5 - 2011

Congratulations and welcome to both Ms. Janis Gojda and Ms. Tara Kinchen who are the newest members on the Board of Assessors (BOA). The College is very fortunate to have 2 fabulous dental hygienists with strong backgrounds in clinical practice and health promotion who will be a great asset to this important committee. With the guidance and mentorship of our 2 experienced BOA’s, Mr. Sam Dajani and Ms. Lila Jorheim MacInnes, the BOA orientation session for Janis and Tara in December 2010 was a great success.

At this time I would like to personally thank Ms. Kathy Griffiths for her role as a BOA over the previous three years; her expertise in assessing registrant’s applications and renewals will be greatly missed.

Thank you,

Stephanie Gordon
Registrar/Executive Director
