Our Board of Trustees

Our Board of Trustees is the administrative body charged with conducting all NCDHA business during the year and acts on behalf of the General Assembly between sessions to establish interim policies. The Board of Trustees is comprised of: NCDHA President, President-Elect, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Treasurer-Elect, Immediate Past President and one member chosen from each of our components. 

Our General Assembly is held each year during Annual Session. During the General Assembly meeting, NCDHA members are given the opportunity to engage in the business aspect of our association. Engaging in the General Assembly enables North Carolina hygienists to express their voice for the direction our association takes in business decisions, community engagements, fundraising opportunities, and advocacy for our profession.  

Contact any of our leaders if you are interested in representing your Component.
