Welcome to the website of the Virginia/Washington DC Chapter of HFMA! First, I want to say what a privilege it is to serve as the President of the chapter for the 2017 – 2018 year. I look forward to working with all of you to help make our chapter the best resource for education and information you want and need to be successful in your workplace.
The national theme for this year is “Where Passion Meets Purpose”, and I think this applies to each of us as we are all involved in a very exciting and dynamic time in the healthcare industry. Each of us was drawn to our careers by the passion we have for healthcare and its challenges. We turn that passion towards our purpose – ensuring our organization delivers the best care possible to our patients and their families. The officers and board members of your chapter are committed to bringing you the most relevant and timely information to assist you in using your passion to meet its purpose.
There are already a few educational events on the schedule for this year. First will be the Fall Education Conference in Virginia Beach in September. Our Education Committee is already working on topics and speakers to bring an interesting and informative agenda for you. Next up will be our first Women in Leadership Conference entitled “Be BoldHER” in December. This promises to be a great event and I suggest you reserve your space early. Look for information on these and other sessions and webinars here and in your email. We hope to see many of you at these meetings.
Please keep in mind that our chapter is led by volunteers. We need the input and support from all members to ensure we give you the information and benefits you want and deserve. There are a variety of ways to get involved – large and small. We will be reaching out to many of you and I encourage you to say yes!
Again, thank you for the opportunity to serve as your President. With your help and support we will have a great 2017-2018!
President, Virginia/Washington DC Chapter, HFMA
