The Biomedical & Clinical Engineering Association of Ireland - BEAI - was set up in 1992 in response to the demands of the growing number of technicians working on electromedical equipment in the public sector. Various sub-committees have been formed to investigate education, publications, training, and professional restructuring. Much has been achieved since the inauguration of the BEAI, including the development of a professional profile and opportunities for further education and training.
Firstly, I would like to thank each and every one of the BEAI executive committee for the dedication and hard work that they continue to put into the BEAI. This has been a key factor in the positive development of the BEAI over its many years in existence, and I hope we can continue to harness that energy and goodwill offered by so many. I would also like to thank all of our members, who have entrusted the executive to manage the services provided by the BEAI.
