A Message from the President

Dear Members,

Welcome to Fall!

We had a great in-person Fall conference last week in Virginia Beach with more than 150 people attending education and networking events over a packed three-day agenda.

It was fantastic to see so many faces for the first time in person in more than a year. I heard from many of you that this was the first in-person conference for you in 18+ months!

I want to thank your all-volunteer board who dedicated many hours of time to planning for this successful event, and of course, thank you to our annual and event sponsors for making it possible!

While I trust that we had a good time at this event, we want to remind you that we have a lot more opportunities to meet people and get great educational content in store for you over the next few months.

Please stay engaged with us by checking our website frequently for networking and learning opportunities, and reach out to me if you want to get more involved in the chapter. We need volunteers like you!

Now is a great time to get HFMA certified! Check out all of the offerings that are available FREE of charge with a paid HFMA membership. You could earn a certification & CPEs in just a week!

Finally, we want your feedback! Each month HFMA sends out a survey to one-twelfth of the member base to ensure widespread representation. The questionnaire assesses the ongoing value members place on the many features of HFMA membership, such as publications, chapter activities, education, and certifications. The feedback collected will be critical to helping continuously improve your experience, guiding HFMA when it comes to developing resources on your behalf. Please be on the lookout for your invitation in the months ahead for an email with the subject line of “Important Request from HFMA”. Your candid opinion and input will be instrumental in ensuring HFMA is responsive to both your needs, as well as that of 75,000 of your colleagues across the country. Moreover, it will help our chapter focus on those areas that are most relevant to your ongoing satisfaction.

Thanks for your continued engagement and support of our chapter. If I can ever be of assistance or you want to get more involved please drop me a line.

Take care,

Brett McMillan
President | Virginia & Washington DC chapter of Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA)
