Northeast Ohio HFMA - Chapter Leaders

As we approach the month of June and the official kickoff of summer, I am excited to begin my year serving as the president of Northeast Ohio HFMA. It is a great honor to serve all of you and our leadership team has been working diligently to provide new opportunities for you to engage with peers at exciting education events and more casual social activities.

The theme for 2019-2020 by HFMA National Chair Michael M. Allen FHFMA, CPA, is Dare You 2 Move. At the Leadership Training Conference in Anaheim, CA, he shared his vision for closing the gap between how things are and how things could be. The theme applies to our profession, organization and even into our own personal lives and relationships. Chapter leaders were challenged to identify areas where things are not what they could be and step out of our comfort zone to close those gaps and move things towards making things the best they can be.


Our chapter leaders have identified numerous areas where we can improve – maximizing the value of our education offerings, offering more social opportunities to expand your professional network and building stronger relationships with our business partners. This organization is here for you and I would like to Dare You 2 Move to get the most out of your HFMA membership this year!

That could mean attending a chapter education session for the first time, joining our membership, communication or program committee or making new connections at an upcoming networking event.

I hope you have a relaxing and joyful summer and look forward to leading you as Northeast Ohio HFMA moves ahead!
