All submissions must be submitted via the HFMA Online Applications program (available soon). The log in for the Online Applications program is not the same as your HFMA log in; however if you have previously submitted a Yerger Application, Education Quality forms, or an Innovation Funding application, you can use the same log in you used for any of these. If you have forgotten your login, follow the link on the form page to request a new password.

Electronic submissions must be completed by 11:59 p.m. February 28, 2018. We will not accept paper submissions or submissions via fax or email.

Consideration of a nominee will focus on:

  • The significance of the accomplishments and contributions of the nominee to HFMA; and
  • The extent of the service provided by the nominee at the chapter, regional, and national levels, including awards earned.

Include the following information in your submission:

  • A narrative describing the basis for nomination
  • To the extent known by you;
    • The nominee's contributions, including any officer, committee/board service, and awards earned within HFMA (you can find this information in the Founders Report on the Chapter Reports Center); and
    • Community and civic service activities that would indicate further contributions as an individual.
  • No more than three (3) letters of recommendation. These letters should focus on examples of ways that the nominee has made a positive impact on the chapter, the community, the association, and/or the industry rather than listing positions the nominee has held. That information will be captured separately on the form.

Once submitted, the nominations remain on file for 3 years.

If you would like to add updated information to a previous nomination, you can resubmit electronically with updated information. 

All submissions must be completed online by 11:59 p.m. February 28, 2018.

If you have any questions, contact Patricia Kosar, Chapter Relations Specialist at (800) 252-4362, ext. 346 or
