We recently learned that the WDS Board has chosen to veto most bylaw amendments passed at the Special Meeting on November 15, 2018.
During the Delta Special Meeting on November 15, 2018, Delta member dentists passed a set of bylaw amendments (with 96% of voting members in favor) aimed at creating a better future for patients and improving transparency in the WDS/Delta governance process.
We recently learned that the WDS Board has chosen to veto the following amendments:
- allow for open nominations for members to run for the board;
- impose term limits on board service for member dentists at Delta;
- make the Delta CEO an ex-officio rather than full member of the board; and
- eliminate board veto powers over member-approved bylaw amendments.
A letter from Delta regarding this decision can be found on the Delta Provider Portal or read here.
The WSDA Board of Directors and legal counsel are currently reviewing this development and considering potential next steps. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
