Board Meeting Highlights

CDHA’s board of directors works year-round in service of all members, setting priorities for the association and advocating for the profession and the importance of oral health to overall health. Twice a year, board members meet in person to discuss important operational and policy matters, and review the association’s progress in meeting its strategic goals.

Summer 2018 Board Meeting Highlights

The Board met via video/teleconference on July 19, 2018.

Finance
  • One of the key roles of a Board of Directors is its fiduciary responsibility. The Board received a report from the audit committee and met with CDHA’s auditor to review the audited financial statements for 2017-2018. The Board approved the audited financial statements for 2017-2018.
  • The Board approved the recommendation of the audit committee to re-appoint KPMG as the auditor for the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 fiscal years.
Policy
  • The Board reviewed and approved a new Reserve Fund Policy.
  • The Board reviewed organizational performance to ensure compliance with its existing policies. (The Board directs, controls and inspires CDHA through the careful establishment of broad written policies reflecting the Board's values and perspectives. Thus, one of the key roles of the Board is monitoring and assessing Board policies and executive limitations at each Board meeting.)
  • The board reviewed proposed changes to the CDHA by-laws, which will be presented to the members for approval at the AGM.
Ownership Linkage
  • One of the key roles of the Board is connecting with the Owners (who are the members) of CDHA. The Board discussed a report from the ownership linkage committee, plans for the upcoming 2018 Summit including the provincial presidents meeting and AGM.
