Save the date for the 2020 HTM Mixer, a Wisconsin Biomedical Association (WBA) event powered by TechNation!
The Wisconsin Biomedical Association (WBA), formerly Biomedical Associations of Wisconsin (BAW), is re-launching as the association for HTM professionals for the state of Wisconsin. WBA is joining forces with TechNation to host the 2020 HTM Mixer in place of the annual meeting BAW held in previous years.
Melissa Wilke, CBET, is a WBA board member and treasurer. Wilke, a clinical engineering specialist at Gundersen Health Systems, said there is a lot of excitement about the relaunch of the organization and the mixer.
“For the mixer, we are looking to celebrate our roots because we have quite a bit of history as BAW, but we also want to take the opportunity to announce our new name,” Wilke said. “And, its an opportunity to redefine ourselves. There have been a lot of advancements through the years. We have a lot of technicians coming into the field and this is an opportunity for everyone to feel included in defining what the goals are for our group and make it something that everyone can benefit from.”
“One common theme I always seem to encounter is truly our commitment to support and grow the biomed field through networking and education,” she added. “We all have a lot we want to learn and we can all learn a lot from each other.”
As a developing organization, WBA has sought the assistance of TechNation to coordinate this year’s event to best serve its members and corporate sponsors. TechNation has success in this arena having organized the 2017 Northwest Mixer supported by the Washington State Biomedical Association and the Oregon Biomedical Association.
“TechNation is honored to assist with the re-branding of the WBA. The Biomed Association of Wisconsin has a phenomenal history and we are excited to lend our resources to re-launch as the WBA,” MD Publishing President and TechNation Publisher John Krieg said. “We will use every sales, marketing and event team tool we have to help bring the necessary exposure and visibility to the WBA. Their current board is dedicated to this new association and TechNation is proud to support this great state and bring WBA back to it’s rightful place.”
The 2020 HTM Mixer will be held October 1-2 at the beautiful Potawatomi Hotel & Casino in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Following a WBA members meeting, attendees and exhibitors are invited to attend a welcome reception featuring hors d’oeuvres and adult beverages in an intimate setting ideal for networking. The second day of the mixer features continuing education sessions, an exhibit hall and a special happy hour event.
Wilke expressed gratitude to TechNation for supporting WBA and helping with the upcoming mixer.
“This is exciting that we have this opportunity with TechNation to help rebrand ourselves,” she said.
Registration is free for all hospital employees, active military members and students. Exhibitors are encouraged to reserve a booth early as space is limited.
