2017-2018 CT HFMA President
As the President of the Connecticut chapter for 2017/2018, I am both honored and grateful for the opportunity to represent our Connecticut membership and its esteemed group of local professionals.
Today, our Connecticut chapter is comprised of more than 350 members from across the state. These members are included in the larger national membership total of more than 40,000 colleagues from all 50 states who all strive to meet the many demands of this complex landscape we know as healthcare finance. As members, we are vital stakeholders in the continued collaboration and shared knowledge across a diverse network of leaders, systems, providers and payers. Each and every one of us contributes to the collective mission of financial viability in our field.
As always, there is quite a bit of activity afoot courtesy of your chapter leadership team and its engaged group of volunteers. We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new website at www.cthfma.org. We listened to our members, and in response, our communications committee has unveiled a new IT platform that is both user friendly and informative. Along with the new website, we are making changes to our event registration process to ensure that the sign-up process is simplified. Improvement activities abound, and the dedicated team behind the scenes continues to make your experience with our chapter the best it can be. We also continue to research the most top-of-mind subjects in the industry today so that we can bring education to you that is relevant and timely.
With mounting pressures both federally and within our state, it is even more critical that we continue to leverage our membership to preserve a stable local healthcare foundation for the future. During this pivotal and increasingly uncertain time in healthcare, your participation and engagement within the Connecticut Chapter of HFMA is essential. We are stronger together and can collectively learn more by sharing one another’s knowledge and expertise.
If you are an active volunteer in our organization, I sincerely thank you for your time and dedication. Without you, we would have no local chapter presence or voice. For those members who have not yet volunteered, I encourage you to do so. By participating just a few hours each month on one of our committees or at one of our events, you become an invaluable contributor to help bolster our education programs, membership and networking activities that benefit our industry at the local level.
As we move through this year, I welcome fresh perspectives from both seasoned and new members, and I encourage you to reach out to me to share your thoughts. The passion that fuels this organization through our membership makes it a remarkable chapter, and I look forward to connecting with you in the year ahead.
