HoD Business Meeting

The HoD Business Meeting is held every two years, immediately before the International Symposium on Dental Hygiene and is one part of three IFDH elements:

Board of Directors Meeting: A 2-day meeting, followed by:

House of Delegates Business Meeting: A 2-day meeting and social events for IFDH HoD members only, followed by:

International Symposium: A 3-day scientific symposium with over 1,000 attendees from around the world.

This is the one in-person meeting for the House of Delegates. Motions are presented and voted on. Individual country members and committees present their work from the last term. A new board is elected. Awards are presented. New committees meet and plan for the next term. Guest speakers on timely topics. Social events include a Welcome Party and offsite dinner and entertainment. And lot of networking for all of our Dental Hygienists from around the world!
