The annual HYPAC Challenge officially begins today! All donations received by HYPAC from today May 1, through June 24, will count toward district totals. The winning district will receive $300 toward a celebratory event. You can log onto the HYPAC website at http://hypac.adha.org to contribute. Please help our District VIII win this challenge. Both Janette Delinger and I are PAC directors on the national level. Please share with your components too. Thank you. Diann
HYPAC is a group of ADHA members who voluntarily pool their resources, through financial contributions and grassroots involvement, to support candidates for congressional office who support the interests of dental hygienists and their patients.
HYPAC benefits me as a dental hygienist by:
HYPAC is the only federal PAC representing the interests of dental hygienists
Gives a voice to the dental hygiene community in Washington
HYPAC is bipartisan. Democrats, Republicans, and Independents have received HYPAC contributions. When choosing which candidates to support, the HYPAC Committee looks at a number of criteria including policy positions, demonstrated leadership on issues of importance to ADHA, committee placement and positions within congressional leadership team and dedication to improving access to oral health care.
Strengthen the voice of your profession by supporting HYPAC.
Contributions to HYPAC are strictly voluntary. Refusal to contribute may be done without reprisal. Annual contributions exceeding $200 will be reported to the Federal Election Commission as required by law. Contributions are not tax-deductible as a charitable contribution for federal or state tax purposes.
So, please consider giving so we can show ADHA that "Eight is Great" and that Missouri will "Show them!" Thank you! Diann
To improve the public's total health, the mission of the Missouri Dental Hygienists' Association is to advance the art and science of dental hygiene by ensuring access to quality oral health care, increasing awareness of the cost effective benefits of prevention, promoting the highest standards of dental hygiene education, licensure, and practice, research, and representing the interests of dental hygienists.
My name is Sherry Powell and it is my honor to serve as the 2012-2013 President of the Missouri Dental Hygienists’ Association. I am a 2006 graduate of State Fair Community College. While a student, I served as Class President and was active in the SADHA group. I have been an active ADHA member since graduation. I have served on the MDHA Board of Trustees, held the position of secretary and in the past year was President-Elect. I am a member of Greater Columbia Dental Hygienists’ Association and enjoy the friendships and activities the group brings. I am the proud mom of Cameron and we enjoy Mizzou football games and various school activities together.
My theme for the year is “Direct Your Destiny”. MDHA is facing many new issues that BOARDS of the past did not experience. Our BOARD will continue to examine the access to care issue and work with MDA to find common ground. We will strive to bring you an Annual Session that is fun-filled and loaded with the most current continuing education courses. We pledge to be there for you and we welcome your comments and suggestions.
MDHA has COUNCILS on which you can serve. You do NOT need to be an elected officer or trustee. These councils involve Legislative, Membership and Annual Session planning. If you are interested in helping on these projects, please contact me.
Thank you to our gracious sponsors! Please take a moment to visit them!
