House of Delegates

The House of Delegates is the legislative and supreme governing body of the TDA.  The 2017 House of Delegates is composed of 141 members, which includes duly elected and installed delegates from each of the 26 components of the Texas Dental Association and the 15 voting members of the Board of Directors. That number also includes the Speaker of the House of Delegates, who is the presiding officer and is without vote. Additionally, the number includes the TDA secretary-treasurer who is an officer of the House of Delegates serving as the Secretary of the House and is without the right to vote. Finally, there are three student delegates, each elected and installed by their respective dental schools; student delegates have full privilege and access to the floor of the House of Delegates, but are without the right to vote and may not introduce resolutions.
