It is August, and as I am writing this message – I am wondering where summer went so fast? I cannot believe that school, the fair and our summer Road Show are almost upon us!
This is my first president’s message of this year, although I am sure you are thinking – wait Marci is president again? Yes, due to some changes in our board, I am now taking on my third and final (for awhile at least) presidential year.
I am happy to be leading this great state of Montana through another exciting and what I hope to be a successful year. We have an awesome Road Show event coming up September 12th in Helena and a packed line up of amazing education for our Fall conference October 23-25 in Billings to start us off right for our chapter year.
We have a new chapter success plan that we crafted at our Summer board meeting and it has goals that relate to certification (ask us how we can help!), increasing membership engagement (new members-look for a great mentor program coming) and also about continuing our high quality member satisfaction.
Please also plan to attend the Western Region Symposium January 12-15, 2020. We have great promotions right now for hosted providers and discounted providers, see the news article. I promise you it won’t disappoint, so budget now to get some sun in Vegas!
The healthcare world is constantly changing. I have found that this HFMA network that I have built has been invaluable to me in my career in bouncing ideas off of others, being able to meet and engage with a lot of great people nationwide and furthering my education. I hope that you will find the value as well – and if you are unsure – just ask any of us on the board. Get involved, stay up to date and network!
Until next time – try to soak up the last few days of summer.
