AAPHD Special Meeting Announcement, Amended Bylaws Posted on AAPHD.ORG, and Bylaws Open Conference Call Invitation

AAPHD has announced a Special Meeting to address the Bylaws amendment required to comply with ADA Resolution 33H-2013.  But more importantly, this is a first step in a larger strategic vision to create a new organization with greater impact and outreach. Broad participation of individuals with varied backgrounds is critical to achieving this goal. Restructuring AAPHD will provide many more opportunities for member involvement and engagement, including leadership opportunities on newly formed Councils for both dentist and non-dentists.

Please visit the Member’s Only page of the AAPHD Website for more information about the amended Bylaws and the Special Meeting.
