Councils

Councils are established by the House of Delegates primarily to monitor issues and trends affecting the dental health of the public and the profession of dentistry and to develop recommended changes in FDA policy. Councils continue to exist until the House of Delegates acts to terminate them.

Committees

Committees can be established by the Board of Trustees and the House of Delegates to investigate matters affecting the association or its members and/or to administer a project, program or event where there is little need for direct oversight or policy interpretation. Unless a committee under its enabling resolution is given status as a standing committee, the committee will automatically terminate upon completion of its charge.
