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 As per section 54(2) of The Dental Hygienists Act the by-laws may be amended and repealed ‘after notice is given in accordance with the by-laws, a by-law under section (1) may be amended or repealed by a majority of the members of the college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:

BY-LAW CHANGES

Posted by CDHM INFO On October - 6 - 2010

Reflecting upon last year’s 2nd annual general meeting where the membership voted upon amending 9 of the CDHM’s by-law articles, we are pleased that at this year’s AGM the CDHM registrants will only be voting upon one amendment. Please note that by-laws may be repealed or amended at a general meeting by a majority vote of the membership.

In accordance with Section 55 of The Dental Hygienists Act, “The college may, by resolution passed at a general meeting, adopt a code of ethics governing the conduct of members.” Council is proposing to the membership that the CDHM adopts the CDHA’s Code of Ethics with the by-laws being revised accordingly.

If you require a copy of this proposed by-law change, please contact the CDHM office. As above, voting on the by-law change may take place in person at the AGM, by mail or by proxy. If you are not attending the AGM and wish to submit a by-law change voting card, please contact the CDHM via email at CDHM (at) cdhm.info or calling (204) 219-2678. Please allow enough time to receive the proxy ballot by mail and then have it mailed back and received at the office by October 18, 2010. As per the By-Laws, Section Proxies, 4.21: The represented member must submit the signed proxy form to the college at least 5 business days before the meeting takes place.
