HFMA recognizes that its strength lies in volunteers, who contribute their time, ideas, and energy to serve the healthcare industry, their profession, and one another. The Founders Committee tracks the volunteer efforts of our members through a points system, and oversees the presentation of awards such as William G. Follmer Bronze Award, the Robert H. Reeves Silver Award, the Frederick T. Muncie Gold Award, and the Founders Medal of Honor. The Founders Committee also serves as a liaison to HFMA at the Association level for any discrepancies between points awarded and points earned.
