Spring 2017 President's Message
This message comes to you with hope that your 2017 is off to a strong start with a bright outlook for the rest of the year, both in your personal and professional lives. I am happy to report that the Utah Medical Equipment Dealers Association is moving full steam ahead with many positive changes in the works.
As of August 2016, the board has decided to partner with Association Solutions based in Midvale to improve the organization and functionality of UTMED. We have a new website where we hope to keep you updated with all topics and events relative to the DME industry. I invite you to visit the website for more information about the association, its board members, and a calendar of board meetings and other events.
The board has met and will continue to meet on a monthly basis to discuss the variety of trends and issues affecting our industry. During the legislative session, we reviewed the topics under discussion at Capitol Hill for potential threats to the welfare of our businesses and our industry. We will strive to keep you in the know on a local level in the future via our newsletters and website.
I would like to invite you to attend a UTMED board meeting to learn more about what we do. I would also encourage you to renew your membership with UTMED if you have not done so already. As with anything, we are stronger working together than we are as separate entities. Our voices together are much more likely to be heard. Join us and make your voice heard.
CEO, Alpine Home Medical Equipment
