Councils & Committees

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 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.

Below is a list of our councils and committees:
  • Council on Ethics, Bylaws and Judicial Affairs
  • Council on Financial Affairs
  • Audit Committee
  • Committee on Conventions & Continuing Education
  • Governmental Action Committee
  • Leadership Development Committee
