I’m sure you will join me in thanking Dan who had the unenviable job of chairing the first in person conference since 2019. Obviously with the threat that the conference might return to a virtual one at short notice it had to be planned in such a way that could allow that to happen. This took some amazing work behind the scenes in particular from Fiona Feltham and Alex Cenic as well as many others at the BDA. Along with my colleagues on the agenda committee.
Details of motions passed at the 2022 Conference can be found here, along with election results.
Congratulations to the following colleagues who were elected to positions:
• Agi Tarnowski (Chair-elect)
• Peter Hodgkinson (Honorary Treasurer)
• Jonathan Randall and Martin Dyer (Honorary Auditors)
• Stuart Allan (Conference Representative to the GDPC)
• Judith Husband (Member to Conference Agenda Committee)
• Jonathan Randall (Member to British Dental Guild Board of Managers)
I would like to think that a virtual LDC conference is a thing of the past and with that in mind I would like to invite you to 2023 LDC Conference at the Majestic hotel in Harrogate.
Being born (South Yorkshire), educated (West Yorkshire) and live and work (North Yorkshire) the conference had to be in Yorkshire!
Hardly well-travelled I hear you say, but when Yorkshire is so perfect why go anywhere else? You’ll be welcomed with open arms to 2023 Conference where this time we hope to have some more input from those that should have been there in Wales. Here’s hoping anyway as I know Dan did his upmost in that respect.
As NHS dentistry is becoming ever more a political issue every day then maybe those that can steer the direction of travel will see the need to attend this highly influential event.
Registration for the event will open in early February with a closing date for registrations, motions and nominations set for early April. Please check back for updates, but for now save the date!
Thursday 8 – Friday 9 June 2023.
Hope to see many new and not so new faces next summer.
