Motion for donation to Michigan Dental Foundation in honor of Karen Burgess.
Motion: To approve $500.00 from our checking account to make a donation to the Michigan Dental Association in honor of Karen Burgess.
Motion made by Sue Carron and seconded by Claudia Menton.
Background information: Karen Burgess passed away this summer and there will be a celebration of life event on the evening of September 29, 2023 that will be attended by members, Karen Burgess's family, and MDA staff. Karen had served the MDA as Executive Director and worked diligently in promoting the mission of the MDA and oral health in the entire state of Michigan. Donations of this kind have been done before in honor of individuals.
Marcy Dwyer checked with the Oakland Dental Society, and they are also discussing $500.00 donation to the MDA Foundation in honor of Karen Burgess.
The conversation at the meeting was supportive of honoring Karen with a donation to the MDA Foundation.
If you have questions or comments, please email centraloffice@detroitdistrictdentalsociety and Marcy Dwyer will send them to the entire group.
If comments or questions are received, we may need to revote this motion.
Please select a response.
