The ADHA Council on Policy & Bylaws works to maintain a current and relevant policy manual by collaborating with all of the councils and other work groups. There is a main policy in each area with supporting policies following. The Policy Manual is available to both members and non-members.


The Board of Directors and the House of Delegates ultimately oversee the Bylaws and Code of Ethics of the organization. These documents govern the conduct of ADHA and its members.


Constituent Bylaws

Although state law takes precedence over these guidelines, it is important that ADHA constituents not be in conflict with the bylaws of the parent organization. Therefore, these guidelines and model bylaws have been developed to ensure that constituents and components are in compliance with the bylaws of the American Dental Hygienists’ Association.
