Welcome!

As we approach the NCBA’s 40th anniversary, I can’t help but reminisce about 1978 when a small group of BMETs and healthcare professionals thought it was time to establish a professional organization whose focus would be the educational and professional development of our peers. Little did we know what the North Carolina Biomedical Association would grow into over the next four decades. I am very proud to have played a part in the formation of this organization that has been so much a part of my life.

It is important though to never forget that any organization is really nothing so much as the people who dedicate their lives and careers to it. And the NCBA is no exception. Over four decades we have had a remarkable group of people who accepted leadership roles in this organization and have helped transform up into what we are today … and what we will continue to evolve into moving forward. 

With that said, as your current NCBA President, it is my pleasure to introduce your 2017-18 leadership team.

At this point in our historical timeline, I’d also like remind our newer members of their past history. This group formed our first Board of Directors and established the original By-Laws which have evolved over time to serve our organization as technology and society have changed over time. The lessons learned from this original group of leaders continue to serve us today.

This, our 40th year is being planned with a special emphasis on our past history. Our 40th Symposium and Expo will be held at the beautiful Pinehurst Hotel & Resort on August 21-24, 2018. The NCBA Board of Directors has started planning our educational program, but it is important that we hear from the members about any developmental opportunities you'd like to see presented next August, or as a stand-alone class during the year. Our strength has always been the support of our members and your feedback is a critical part of that process. Please reach out to me or any member of the Board with your ideas and suggestions
