Dental nurses abolish chairman role

BADN members voted to abolish the post of chairman of Council, expanding the role of president to encompass the duties of chairman.
The motion to abolish the post of chairman, which was proposed by a BADN member and supported by several Council members, was debated  at BADN’s well-attended AGM  –  held at Dental Showcase on Saturday 22 October 2011 – and passed by a 96% majority vote.
President Nicola Docherty said: ‘BADN would like to thank past chairman Angie McBain for her sterling work on behalf of the Association.

‘Angie has been a member of Council for more than 10 years, having held the posts of regional co-ordinator, president, chairman, acting finance officer and chair of the now-defunct sedation and education groups, and has represented the Association on several working groups and Committees. We would like to wish her every success in her future endeavours.’
