Happy New Year!  It’s hard to believe that 2020 is upon us already!  I’d like to thank you for allowing me to serve as your President for the coming year.  As in previous years, the President is surrounded by a very talented group of professionals serving on the board, who along with your help, will make this another great year for our association. 

I’d like to thank David Wilson and last year’s team for their leadership in arranging a very successful 41st annual Symposium.  Feedback from attendees and vendors were very positive.  I’d like to thank our vendors for their support of the NCBA and all the various employers of those in the HTM community for allowing their people to attend.  We are going to try to build on that success with an even better event with the 42nd Annual NCBA Symposium held again in Pinehurst.  This year’s dates are August 19-21, 2020, with the Mike McCoy Golf Tournament being held on August 18.  More information will be available in the coming weeks.

Please allow me to introduce the 2019-2020 NC Biomedical Association Board of Directors:

Jeff Hogan - Vice President

Terry Morris - Treasurer

Jeremy Collins - Membership Secretary

Mary Coker - Recording Secretary

David Wilson - Ex-Officio

Bill Fry - Vendor Coordinator

Greg Lucas - Newsletter Editor – Greg Lucas

Greg Johnson - Hotel Coordinator

Aaron Watts - Golf Coordinator

Chris Carpenter – Board Member

Codi Nelson – Board Member

Matt Woods - Board Member

Clint McCoy – Board Member

While symposium planning and other activities for 2020 are well underway, we can always use help!  Your ideas and suggestions are needed for the continued success of your association.  Feel free to join in on any of the board meetings.  The schedules for the meetings are listed on the website.  We have several who are not on the board, who continue to contribute in very big ways.  Thanks guys, you know who you are!  Our goals and efforts will continue to be centered around a strong symposium event with outstanding educational and networking opportunities.  If you have any interest in learning more about the association, how it runs, or have suggestions for improvement, feel free to reach out to me or any board member.  We’d love your input!
