President's update


Well, the summer heat is finally cranking up and it looks like it’s here to stay for a while.  Under normal circumstances, we’d be putting the final touches on symposium preparation and getting ready for some golf!  In May, we made what was, at the time, a difficult decision to cancel the 42nd NCBA Symposium.  Its very disappointing that we will not be able to enjoy the fruits of a lot of folk’s labor as this year’s event was shaping up to be another show to be proud of.  I want to take this opportunity to update the membership on a few important upcoming events.


Net+ Training Class – WakeMed Cary

As a reminder, the NCBA is coordinating a Net+ Training Class through New Horizons Computer Learning Centers.  It will be offered August 17-21 both virtually and on the WakeMed Cary campus.  Please contact Jeff Hogan at for more details.  We appreciate the support from WakeMed in helping make this happen!


Annual Business Meeting – August 5, 2000 @12pm

One of the more important events of the annual symposium is our annual business meeting, which is when the membership elects new board members and provides updates to the membership.  This meeting will be held in a virtual format with an invitation and agenda going out in the next week. 



Each year, six members of the Board of Directors rotate off and are replaced with new leaders elected by the membership.  Normally, this happens right after our business meeting with a paper ballot.  Since our meeting will be held virtually this year, each member will vote with an electronic ballot using the “Election Buddy” online tool.  More information will be provided at the annual meeting.  If you are interested in serving as a board member, please contact Mary Coker as soon as possible at 


4th Annual Mike McCoy Golf Tournament

One of the highlights of the symposium, for many, is the golf tournament.  While we couldn’t have it in Pinehurst in August, plans are being made to host this tournament in the fall.  Mark your calendars for October 6, 2020 and plan to attend the 4th Annual Mike McCoy Golf Tournament at Tot Hill Farms in Asheboro, NC.  It is my understanding that this was one of Mike’s favorite courses.  Look for more information from Aaron Watts in the coming weeks.


Kevin Scoggin NCBA Shop of the Year

We all know that there are some shops out there going above and beyond, doing outstanding work for their customers and their communities during these trying times.  What better way to recognize them than to nominate them for the 2020 Kevin Scoggin NCBA Shop of the Year?  The board has decided to extend the nomination period for this year’s award through September 17, 2020.  Please contact Clint McCoy at with questions.  Nomination forms are available on the website.


On behalf of the board, I’d like to thank you for what you’re doing for your customers and our communities.  Please do everything you can to stay safe!  I look forward to joining each of you at our annual meeting on August 5.  In the meantime, please feel free to reach out with questions.

2020 NCBA Symposium - Cancelled

The NCBA Board of Directors have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 NCBA Symposium due to COVID-19.  The ongoing uncertainty around the virus as it relates to restrictions with public gatherings, social distancing and traveling, along with the economic impact being realized by our vendors and attendees has made it impossible to move forward. 

The Board will continue working to offer educational opportunities in an alternative format.  We are actively working with the resort on contract negotiations and hope to have an announcement about future symposium dates shortly.  Stay tuned!!!

If you have already registered for this year’s symposium, you will be contacted individually about a refund.

Thank you for what you’re doing each day for our patients!  If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to any board member.  Stay safe!

COVID-19 and the NCBA Symposium
We continue to monitor current conditions as it relates to COVID-19 and public gatherings.  As of today, the NCBA Symposium in Pinehurst in August is still scheduled to take place.  Any postponement or cancellation decisions will be promptly communicated to all of our vendors and potential attendees.  Thank you!
