New Member Benefit with Palmeri Media Group

Palmeri Media Group CE opportunities for DTABC members

We are pleased to confirm that DTABC members in good standing will be granted complimentary membership to the Palmeri 2021 Dental Technology Academy [DTA]. This will allow DTABC members to participate in all the lecture dates [a total of four dates] for a total of 16- one hour lectures including a Q&A. As part of the DTABC investment, members will also be able to select a maximum of 8 courses [one hour each] from the Spectrum Denturist Academy [SDA] lecture calendar and a maximum of 4 courses [4 clinical 1.5 hours lectures] from the Toronto Implant Academy [TIA] lecture calendar.

To summarize, this means that as a DTABC member you have the choice to select a limited amount of courses from the SDA and TIA lecture calendar and attend all the DTA lecture dates free of charge. That's a total of 28 courses.

You will also receive a CE certificate for each lecture you complete.If you are unable to attend some of the courses during their scheduled times and dates, you can view them on demand for a limited time at a later date.
We include below information on each academy. Remember in BC one hour=one CE credit, regardless of the different point systems oultined in each academy.

We really hope you enjoy the array of free courses available this year. If you have any questions please contact Renata-renata@dentaltechniciansofbc.com

Since there are four elected positions to be filled, there will be no elections and the four nominees/candidates are elected to the Board by acclamation as per the bylaw 53.1. Bylaw 53.1 states if the number of candidates equals the number of vacant elected director positions on the board, those candidates who have been nominated are deemed to be elected by acclamation and there is no need to proceed with an election.
The four nominees/candidates are:

Roberto Kim, RDT- returning; three year term renewed and begins January 1, 2022
