    Hello Fellow Biomeds,

    Some of you may know Dick Habegger from Associated Medical Electronics, Coast Medical, Pacific Health Resources, or AMSCO but he was instrumental & a founding member of the CMIA clear back in the early 1970's. I am NOT talking about the Canadian Military Intelligence Association. This is about the beginning of many biomedical associations across the USA, the "California Medical Instrumentation Association."

    Please take time to ask your fellow members if they can post this in their biomedical organizations.

    Thank you very much.

    Throwing some education out there 

    A little history on our Board of Trustees.  Christa Shiver was the first BMET to win the "BMET of the Year" award. The award was started in memory of Dave Smith. Many years ago. Most of the Board of Trustees have won this award or a similar one. All BOT have been serving in leadership positions for GBIS for many years. They are very experienced in all aspects of our society. Christa has served in all positions of the officers (Pres, V-Pres, etc). She has been in GBIS actively for 17 years. It is hard to rise to the BOT governing body positions because of the years you have to serve in GBIS and the required experience and accomplishments. All BOT are lifetime members of GBIS. We are very proud of our Board of Trustees. Awesome group. Horace Hunter, Christa Shiver, Dr. Mike O'Rear, Dianne O'Rear, Emmanuel King. This blog was submitted due to questions on our Board Of Trustees and who are they. Oh by the way, our executive director is Horace Hunter. Thank you Horace for everything you have done for our society.

    Maybe more education on our blog soon:  Submitted by: Christa Shiver, GBIS, Board of Trustee.    2-23-17     1:22PM

    The 2016, once again, a success. Thanks to all the Board of Trustees like Horace, Dr. Mike, Dianne who had a major responsibility in preparations for the conference. Many do not realize the task of preparing, packing, setting up, perform duties during the conference,  packing up again then organizing and putting things up for the next year. Thank you to all and I so much appreciate everything.

    The 2015 GBIS Conference provided the perfect arena to take advantage of educational and networking opportunities.

    As a vendor at the conference, I found the meeting to be extremely beneficial.

    I wanted to thank you for making the 2015 GBIS Conference a success. I'm not sure what was different this year, but the booth traffic was great and everyone seemed to be happy to be there. I thought the CHOA facility was great for the conference. I believe this was the best GBIS ever!

    Horace, Christa and entire team that worked on the GBIS 2015 Conference.

    Congratulations on the success of the events. The location was more than adequate. The classes were interesting. Presenters were very knowledgeable. Food & Beverages tasty. The turnout was much better than last year. I know how hard you had to work to make the event a success.

    I wish to thank you for inviting me to attend. I look forward to next year and to continue to sponsor and support GBIS.

    You'll are doing fine work.

    There may have been a few hiccups, but I thoroughly enjoyed the meeting. Met some great people, and should lead to some new business. We will be back next year.

    Thanks for the great hospitality!
