Message from our President
Utah HFMA Chapter members and guests -
Welcome to the Utah Chapter website! The site should serve as a tool to help you learn more about the Utah chapter, upcoming events, current chapter leaders and also link you to National HFMA Tools! If you have any suggestions on information you would like to see on the site, please reach out to myself or Chris Coccimiglio and we will work to add appropriate information!
As many of you already know, at the May 2016 meeting and golf event at Thanksgiving Point, I was sworn in as the chapter President for the 2016-2017 year. I appreciate the opportunity to serve the Utah chapter in this role and I am excited to continue the great work that has been accomplished by the many key leaders who have served before me and those who currently serve with me! As a chapter, we have been fortunate to have great leadership and on-going dedication from our board officers, chair leaders and past, current and prospective members.
A very special thank you to Jennifer Muhlestein, our President for the 2015-2016 year. Jennifer has a strong commitment to HFMA and her positive energy has been a pleasure to work with over the last year! During her tenure, the Utah chapter held a successful Women’s Conference and held thoughtful educational programs throughout the year! Thanks again!
In April, I attended HFMA’s Leadership Training Conference in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, along with others of the Utah Chapter board officer/chair leaders. We were able to network with other chapter leaders and brainstorm ways we can continue to enhance our chapter to meet the needs of our local membership. There is excitement within HFMA given the transformation in healthcare and how we will be able to adapt to the changes that are a result of this time of transformation. The National Theme for 2016-2017 is THRIVE. “It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.” – Epictetus, ancient Greek Philosopher. As many of us know, change is not easy and there are many paths each of us can choose to take personally and professionally and as organizations during times of change. The healthcare industry has been given an enormous opportunity to change the way healthcare is delivered, financed and experienced, and we are all challenged to think creatively regarding the traditional roles and partnerships. Hopefully we can all choose to THRIVE during this time of transformation.
To support these ideas and to support the Utah chapter, the board and I hope to provide educational and networking sessions to discuss transformation and how to weather through difficult times. We all have much to learn and offer by bringing together our different perspectives. If you have ideas for topics or speakers, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our Program Chair/President Elect – Michele Ebright as she is working on the agenda for the year!
I appreciate all of your help and support and look forward to serving you this year!
