MEET THE TEAM

FCDSA is now incorporated!

The FCDSA was incorporated on November 2, 2017 under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act. This means that we have a new governance structure and new by-laws. These will soon be approved and the website will be updated accordingly.


BOARD OF DIRECTORS

The Board of Directors (formerly known as the Council) is composed of two representatives nominated by each member association and elected by the voting representatives at the Annual General Meeting. Each member association nominates one junior representative and one senior representative, each of whom is enrolled in an undergraduate dentistry program. Normally, a junior representative will progress to the role of senior representative. Representatives should be in different years. To learn more about the role and responsibilities of the Board of Directors, review section 10 of the FCDSA General Bylaw No. 1. Follow this link to learn more about the current Board.


Executive

The Executive of the federation reports to the Board of Directors and is elected by the voting representatives at the Annual General Members from those serving on the Board. The Executive includes the president; vice president, finance; vice president, research, and three regional Executive members representing their schools in western, central and eastern Canada. Serving members of the Executive are currently enrolled in an undergraduate dentistry program. Regional councillors are currently enrolled in an undergraduate dentistry program in their designated region. Members of the Executive hold office for a one-year term, from the conclusion of one AGM to the conclusion of the next AGM. To learn more about the role and responsibilities of the Board of Directors, review section 12 of the FCDSA General Bylaw No. 1. Follow this link to learn more about the current Executive.
