Chairman of the Board and CEO
of Drive Medical
At the “Stand Up for Homecare” gathering that AAHomecare sponsors every year, Harvey stood-up. The room was filled to capacity. There were close to 400 dealers and other guests all enjoying a libation and some tasty finger food. When he spoke, he was not bashful. Harvey asked for better and more participation from every dealer.
One of the problems I am struggling to resolve is that an insufficient number of DME/HME companies are members of AAHomecare and their state associations. All dealers and providers benefit from their labor, not just those who belong. When I realize how much more can be accomplished if many more companies got on board as dues paying members, I become even more determined to help fill in the ranks.
I believe these words are exactly what Harvey said: “Check your egos at the door.” Despite how noisy the room was, I heard those words. The rest of his talk was equally vital. He challenged everyone in the industry to send in a $1,000.00 check to AAH. He said we all should solicit friends and other dealers to do the same, and I agree.
This is the most important effort for every dealer: Put your hand in your pocket and send funds and your membership application, if you are not yet a member. Click here to join AAHomecare now.
