Notice of Proposed Amendment to Bylaw Parts 2 (College Board)

The Board of the College of Dental Surgeons of BC (CDSBC) has approved an amendment to Section 2.07 of the CDSBC bylaws dealing with the College Board (terms of office of elected board members). CDSBC is requesting this bylaw change to extend the term of elected board members by one year.

The amendment has the effect of postponing the need for a board election this year for a dentist registrant board member. One dentist board member term of office expires on June 30, 2022 and an election would be needed to fill the vacancy. As a result of this proposed amendment the dentist registrant term would be extended until June 2023.

Given that CDSBC is pursuing amalgamation to create a single oral health regulatory college with the three other oral health colleges, postponing the election this year will provide stability and consistency for the governance of CDSBC to successfully support the transition to amalgamation.

Comments on the proposed bylaw amendments are welcome before February 14, 2022. More detail is provided in the notice linked below.
