Board of Directors

AAHomecare's Board of Directors and Executive Committee are composed entirely of volunteers from member companies. They meet up to four times each year to establish strategic guidance, set priorities, and evaluate progress.

The Board represents a broad cross-section of home medical equipment providers, manufacturers, and related companies. The Board and its Executive Committee direct AAHomecare policy and oversee operations of the Association. The Board includes chairs of the Association’s membership-driven advisory councils.

Board of Director nominations are due April 22 -- see nomination forms: Nomination Form - Word version Nomination Form - PDF version
