Town Hall Meeting: Proposed WDS Bylaws Changes, Memorandum of Understanding & Annual Meeting Questions

Delta will host a virtual town hall meeting on Oct. 8 to answer questions surrounding the proposed Bylaws changes, Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), and upcoming Annual Meeting.

Last week, WSDA and Delta Dental of Washington announced proposed Washington Dental Service Bylaws changes. This announcement came after many collaborative discussions and a commitment to move forward together as partners to improve the oral health of Washingtonians.

We’re excited about the proposed changes and we want you to be excited about them as well. Delta is hosting the first of two virtual town hall meetings to answer any questions you have surrounding the proposed Bylaws changes, the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), and the upcoming Annual Meeting.
