    This year the AGM / Dinner will be held on SUNDAY 13th of NOVEMBER 2005 at 6.00 pm at the Sheraton Parkway Hotel at High way 7 & Steels [ the same venue where the 'after the wave' dinner was held ].

    As we have already organized one grand dinner in April 2005, this will be more like a small family affair with only the members and their spouses. The dinner will cost only $ 50 per head. There won't be a souvenir; any big sponsors or guests except for some invitees from our counterparts form USA-the IMHO members. We are trying to combine a CME (continuing medical education) course at the same time.

    Please be kind enough to email back and let us know ASAP, whether you will be attending this dinner.

    If you are attending please provide the number of people attending and whether you require a vegetarian meal

    It is being organized on a Sunday this year keeping the dentists in mind as most of them are working full day on Saturdays. Join in and enjoy an evening meeting and dining with your friends and colleagues.
