14 Strategies to Improve Your Education Hours Bottom Line
We are more than three-quarters of the way through the year. Do you have enough education hours budgeted to reach your goal. If not, check out our strategies to achieve success.
Dash to the Finish Line
Membership falls just below education in the number of points chapters earn on the CBSC. HFMA has a new membership contest to reward your achievements and a list of incentives we are working from our end to help us all achieve our goals.
The (Not So) Secret Language of Membership Survey Results
Reading your membership survey isn't always intuitive. We talked to the experts to help you figure out not only what your members said, but what they really meant.
Choosing Your Regional Executive
It's probably the most important choice you make after choosing your chapter president. LTC is where the election process begins. It ends in a vote at Fall Presidents Meeting. Choose the person who will represent your region carefully.
Check our the conversations about planning a successful and productive LTC, productive board meetings, an incredible speaker, the volunteer coordinator position and other volunteer position descriptions, and how chapters have used the chair's logo throughout their chapter year. Join the conversation or start one of your own!
Chapters earn DCMS credit for members who attend national education programs. And some national events offer free membership to non-members who register. Boost your education bottom line and maybe even your membership base. Check out all the national offerings including the new Value Summit.
The Write Stuff
Our knowledgeable members are great sources of information, and we tap into their expertise for hfm magazine. Is there an expert from your chapter who can help you deliver information to your members that is current and on target? We name names.
