The BDA is the professional association for dentists and dental students in the UK. It exists solely for the benefit of its members, has no external shareholders, and so its resources are used exclusively for the benefit of the membership. As a registered trade union the governing body of the BDA must be directly elected by its wider membership. From the summer of 2012 onwards the governing body of the BDA will be designated as the “Principal Executive Committee” (PEC).
The aim of the following pages is to help you gain an insight into the PEC and in particular the elections process for the PEC that is now underway. Information is also provided on the structures and issues surrounding it. We hope that the information provided within these pages is helpful. If you have any further questions please contact the Governance team either by mail, telephone or e-mail using the details below.
