This is an amazing list of awards and achievements made possible because of our wonderful volunteers, supportive business partners and engaged members.
While the chapter had a successful 2018\2019, we recognize that 2019\2020 is a year in which we need to continue evaluating what we are offering and how we are providing value. We have implemented a new planning committee called our Centralized Education committee. The committee will be focusing on all events as a whole instead of “siloed” events. The approach we are utilizing will focus on conference themes, topics, speakers and networking to avoid the common pitfall of redundant offerings at multiple conferences. We are continuing our efforts to involve healthcare executives through roundtable peer-to-peer discussions on best practices.
In an effort to provide events to our membership that are meaningful and delivered in various formats we have decided to combine and reduce live conferences and develop events tailored to healthcare organizations and their specific learning objectives.
Our live conferences will consist of our Fall Summit which will include Regulatory\Compliance, WIL conference and our Annual conference supplemented with webinars, workshops, boot camps, mentoring programs and onsite healthcare organization events. Keeping with our efforts to involve the Association’s key leadership in our conferences, Joe Fifer, President of HFMA, will keynote our Fall conference and HFMA’s National Chairman for 2019\2020, Michael Allen will highlight our Annual conference in April 2020.
Michael Allen has extended a challenge to chapters through his theme for the year “Dare You to Move”. I am asking the Colorado chapter to accept this challenge and help us make changes that promotes HFMA’s values and commitment to driving change in healthcare.
Look for chapter updates through our weekly Colorado Connections email for chapter news and events. Also, visit our chapter’s website at hfma-co.org for information on everything happening in our chapter.
I am honored to serve this chapter as the President for a second year in 2019\2020. Working with our engaged volunteers last year has allowed us to move into this year running at full speed with our eyes wide open and laser focused on chapter initiatives. Our team will strive to bring value to our membership, engage volunteers and work with our business partners through events that stretch the imagination and offer opportunities to get great education, expand your network and get involved in a premier healthcare membership organization. Here’s to a great Year!
