Get involved with the Northern Ireland Branch Council and BDA Benevolent Fund
10 October 2019
BDA members working in Northern Ireland are encouraged to stand for available seats on the Northern Ireland (NI) Branch Council and the BDA Benevolent Fund.
BDA Branches and Sections offer a varied programme of educational and social events, to help support dentists throughout their careers, and provide networking opportunities.
The BDA NI Branch sets up and runs a lively programme of CPD and social activities throughout the year for dentists.
As a democratic organisation, the Northern Ireland Branch Council elects three new members to its committee each year. We are looking for dedicated and enthusiastic dentists to help plan, organise and run our activities and events, which benefit our whole profession.
You can nominate yourself by emailing the current BDA NI Branch President, Claudette Christie, please explain your interest in the position and outline the skills and experience you can bring.
Nominations will then go forward for election at the BDA NI Branch AGM on the evening of Tuesday 12 November 2019, at the Malone Lodge Hotel in Belfast.
The BDA NI Branch is also looking for a new BDA Benevolent Fund Representative. The Fund is a charity supporting all dental students, dentists and their families in financial need and relies on volunteers to be able to help dentists in need.
The representative will help manage local fundraising activities, liaise with other representatives and help support other general work - please email to find out more about the role or express your interest.
