NEDDA By-Laws Revision
Drs. Chanatry, Schumacher, and Stevenson recently updated our By-Laws to reflect changes in technology and the way members communicate with the Association. These updates were voted on and approved at the last NEDDA business meeting. Thanks to the By-Laws Committee for the tedious, time-consuming work that was put into the revision.
Summary of revisions:
- Noticing Members- Notice to members may be made by presentation in writing at Association meetings, by written notice via US Mail, by newsletter, or by Electronic means, including but not limited to email, social media, text messaging, Association Web site, electronic newsletter, or any other widely accepted mode of electronic communication.
- General Exemptions – Retired Life, Privileged, and Honorary Members shall be exempt from the payment of dues, the amount of exemption to correspond with the percentage of exemption provided to Retired Life, Privileged and Honorary members of the Florida Dental Association and assessments to this Association.
The revised By-Laws can be viewed here.
Please be aware of the following ADA By-Law Change:
- Active Life members will now pay 75% of active member dues and assessments. The discount decreased from 50% to 25% and is effective as of 2013.
