Indiana Dental Hygienists' Association 


Happy Summer IDHA! I hope you are enjoying the sunshine and longer days. July was a busy month for IDHA, hosting two exciting events. The Philips Symposium was held in downtown Indy, thanks to the generous support and collaboration with our friends at Philips. It was followed by a successful day of IDHA business at our IDHA Special Meeting. We formally adopted the new component map and our revised bylaws. We are very grateful to Patterson Dental for providing our meeting space!

Thank you IDHA for moving us forward! We reviewed component management under the ADHA Charter Agreements, and the changes in IDHA. Further details will be coming soon from your local components, as we now work with each component leader to prepare for activity in the fall at both your component and state level. I look forward to seeing you at our Annual Session in November, and our first official General Assembly, where every member gets a vote!

                                             Barbara L. Owens

Barb has worked with nonprofits the majority of her career and in the association management environment for over 22 years, predominately in the membership and event planning areas.  Barb has a passion for serving others and considers herself blessed to be able to work with nonprofit organizations whose missions she can endorse. That passion extended to volunteer work as a client advocate for a local Pregnancy Resource Center while living in St. Louis for the past eight years. She also has been active in women's and children's ministries at her home church. Barb loves spending time with her three precious grandchildren and is an amateur photographer, using her photos in ways that bless others and chronicle her family's history. While in St. Louis, Barb worked 15 months for Central Office Management Solutions (COMS) and was assigned the Indiana Dental Hygienists' Association as her client. Having recently returned to Indianapolis, she is excited to once again have the opportunity to work with IDHA.
