2014 Symposium A Success

The Heartland Biomedical Association hosted its annual educational symposium and vendor fair on November 8th at St. Elizabeth Regional Medical Center in Lincoln, Nebraska. Attendees enjoyed presentations from speakers on a variety of educational topics. This year's event also included a vendor fair attended by nationally recognized companies affiliated with the healthcare and medical equipment repair fields.

The annual election was held during the business meeting with John Kotchian winning the vote for Vice President. Other board members elected include Scott Ostrand, Travis Jeffries, and William Doiel. The fourth board seat resulted in a three-way tie between Suren Brutyan, Paul Collett, and William McSharry with the winner to be decided by a board election in December. Congratulations to Sean Bowden, 2014 member of the year!
