Spotlight on the Vendor Affiliate Advisory Committee

Around the HBMA

By Cal LaGroue, Chair

The purpose of the Vendor Affiliate Advisory Committee is to serve as a liaison between HBMA and the vendor community. This committee provides the recommended structure and guidelines for vendor related marketing programs, exhibit hall opportunities, and surveys that vendor members complete, giving feedback on new or revised program opportunities.

We are pleased to have completed our first piloted growth program with one of our vendor members in 2023. This program yielded positive results to help with new member outreach and renewals for HBMA members. Two other vendor members are scheduled to help continue with this outreach program through the summer of 2024.

The time commitment for this committee entails a one hour Zoom call once per month. During these monthly calls we discuss the HBMA upcoming conferences, member outreach, and how HBMA can best serve its vendor members.

If you are a vendor member who would like to bring some fresh ideas on how to better serve the HBMA community, please feel free to email info@hbma.org or call me directly at (205) 874-8336.
