Board taps Bowen to lead NEMEP

Tuesday, April 11, 2017

ALBANY, New York – Just months after New York and New Jersey decided to combine their state HME associations, they have announced new leadership.

The board of directors of the Northeast Medical Equipment Providers association (NEMEP) has chosen Beth Bowen, who already leads state HME associations in Florida, North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia, as their new executive director.

“NEMEP is very lucky to have such a distinguished and energetic professional at its helm,” Kim Voelker, the former executive director of NEMEP, wrote in a letter to members on April 11.

Earlier this year, Voelker led efforts to combine the New York and New Jersey state HME associations.

Most recently, Bowen led efforts to combine the North Carolina and Virginia state HME associations.

“I look forward to serving with the board and the members of NEMEP beginning next week,” she wrote in an email on April 11.
