Northwest Component

Northwest continues to try and involve as many hygienists on our west side of the state. Fall newsletters were mailed out to all NW members and about 100 potential members. We try to encourage all members, that if they are not close to our meeting site, that they may attend ANY component meeting. We directed them towards the IDHA website, and the Facebook pages of the borderline components. Northwest faces the challenge that our component has 22 counties and it is just over a 2 hour drive for some members.

As a reminder, it is important to all members that they send UPDATED addresses and email addresses. They should be sending them to the State Board, local component, and ADHA. The concern is that they are missing out on valuable information in a timely manner by not having addresses current.

The future is bright for our profession. If we continue to value our professional membership, we should be able to move forward in leaps and bounds. The citizens of Iowa deserve our best. Ultimately we are fighting for them and that they all deserve accessible dental care.
