The Board of the College of Dental Surgeons of BC (CDSBC) has approved a proposed 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 a board election for 2022 by allowing the term of office for one registrant board member whose term expires on June 30, 2022 to be extended by one year. Given that CDSBC is pursuing amalgamation to create a single oral health regulatory college with the three other oral health colleges, the amendment will provide stability and consistency for the governance of CDSBC to successfully support the transition to amalgamation.
Notice of these proposed amendment is provided to the Minister of Health and regulatory colleges of other health professions in the province as required by section 19 (6.2) of the Health Professions Act, as well as a courtesy notice to all registrants, the public and other stakeholders.
Comments may be submitted to the College of Dental Surgeons of BC and/or to the Ministry of Health no later than 12 noon on
February 14, 2022.
