Officer bearer roles and responsibilities: Roles of Chair and Chair Elect Revised March 2020 Final
Representative to the Scottish Dental Practice Committee
Representative to the Scottish Dental Practice Committee (Currently Clare Murphy) [Hazel Hannigan and Clare Murphy have been nominated]
I wish to stand for SDPC on behalf of Forth Valley LDC. I graduated from Glasgow in 1997, have worked in Stenhousemuir since 1998 and became a partner in practice in 2009. I joined Forth Valley LDC in 2019 having previously served for 3 years from 1999-2002. I was a VT trainer for 10 years, was the National adviser for Trainer development with NES for 8 years and have been a committee member of the west of Scotland Division of FGDP(UK) since 2000. I have been very vocal in supporting the profession throughout the pandemic having given several interviews on both national radio and press. I believe I can make a positive contribution to SDPC. Proposed by Nicola McMillan and seconded by Mark Sorbie.
The election for representative to the SDPC will be held in the Elections session of conference from 13.05 on 23 April. LDC delegates are eligible to vote in this election.
Nominations for an office bearer position can be made up to the point where the Chair calls for the election for that post to be held. Each candidate must have the support of a proposer and seconder. Nominated candidates can opt to speak prior to the vote being taken.
