Our Board of Trustees

 Our Executive Committee 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 Executive Committee is comprised of: NCDHA Officers – President, President-Elect, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Treasurer-Elect, Immediate Past President and NCDHA Trustees.

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, continuing education, fundraising opportunities, and advocacy for our profession.
