In the interest of reasonable expectations, allow me to explain a little about the association. ADMEA is, in many ways, a one-man operation.
Aside from the Executive Director, (that's me-a part time position), ADMEA has no staff, just a group of dedicated volunteers. The best times to reach me are from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM CT, weekdays. I also do some traveling in order to represent members in such groups as the Jurisdiction C Council and other organizations.
E-mail is the best way to reach me, as I can usually check e-mail from the road, even when I can't return phone calls. I am always happy to speak with members and prospective members by phone, when you can catch me, and will return calls; just allow anywhere from several hours to several days under some circumstances.
Please ask any questions you may have about the industry, and we will do our best to answer them, or to refer you to qualified attorneys, consultants, suppliers or others who can meet your needs. I am not an expert on reimbursement issues, nor can I help you make decisions about starting a business.
