Council has recently reviewed the membership categories in this By-Law 4.2 Categories of Membership and has resolved to include COVID-19 amendments  to 'Concessional Member' 2(d) and (f)  in the membership categories. 

Concessional members 2 (d) and 2 (f) now read as follows:

2 (f)         A dentist who, during the COVID-19 crisis is unemployed as a dentist and is seeking employment as a dentist in Australia.

These temporary changes to certain Concessional membership categories were passed by Council after   the commencement of 'Level 2 Restrictions' to support our members during the period when they were unable to work their normal hours.
