The second Annual General Meeting held at the Canad Inns Polo Park on September 26, 2009 was a great success. Our sincere thanks to those that attended and participated in discussions, activities and feedback! Your involvement is critical to the CDHM achieving its goals.
It was a great morning that integrated linkage with members and information sharing by Council and Committees. Some highlights included:
- Reports from the CDHM Council Chair, Registrar & Complaints Committee Chair:
A summary of the past year was presented by Mickey Emmons Wener – Council Chair, and Kellie Hildebrandt – Registrar. A brief report by Cindy Isaac-Ploegman also captured the Complaints Committee’s activities since January 2009. Copies of these reports can be found in the Annual Report, available online at www.cdhm.info.
- Two new Council Members elected:
Patti Hawthorn and Terry Phillips were elected by the membership, each to serve a three-year term on Council. The CDHM sincerely appreciates these individuals dedication and commitment.
- Proposed By-law Changes Discussed and Voted on:
Each article of the by-laws was discussed with the proposed changes accepted by the membership present. A new copy of the by-laws will be sent to each member in the coming months.
- Continuing Competency Program Presentations:
We are fortunate in Manitoba and in the profession of dental hygiene to have an expert in the Quality Assurance/Continuing Competency field, Joanna Asadoorian. She provided some excellent insight into the current research and trends in continuing competency across North America. Members of the Continuing Competency Committee then provided the members a framework for the ‘made in Manitoba’ program that will be implemented in 2010.For more information on the components of the program as developed thus far, please see page 5 of the latest CDHM newsletter.
Minutes of the second Annual General Meeting will be available on the CDHM website in the weeks to come.
