Voting Your Proxy Ballot or Replacing Your Proxy
We call on WDS to allow open elections at the November 8 Annual Meeting or to postpone these elections until after a ruling in Bradshaw, et al v. WDS,
our lawsuit directly tied to Delta’s process for electing member dentists to the Delta Board of Directors. We urge you to NOT participate in the November 8 election UNLESS Delta allows open elections.
Here is how you can do that:
If You CANNOT Attend: Assign your proxy to Dr. John Gibbons.
Dr. Gibbons will follow the strategy outlined below. Need a replacement proxy? Download this replacement to fill out.

If You WILL Attend:
Join our group described below. Reply to this email if you want to join us.
A group of members, including Dr. John Gibbons, will travel to Seattle Center on November 8 to observe the annual meeting.
If WDS allows open nominations, then that group (and its proxies) will sign in and participate in open elections at the annual meeting. If Delta does not allow for open nominations then that group will leave without signing in.
WDS’s Bylaws specify that elections for member dentists on Delta’s Board cannot occur unless a quorum of 10% of members in good standing is present in person or by proxy. If there is not quorum on November 8 then there cannot be voting.
Already Submitted Your Proxy?
If you have already submitted your proxy to Delta and want to change your vote, you can provide Delta with a revocation of proxy prior to the meeting. Download a replacement proxy here.
