There's still time to add to your education hours before the close of the 2013-14 DCMS year on April 30. HFMA programs are a great way to supplement the education programs your chapter offers. When a member of your chapter participates in a national HFMA program, your chapter earns DCMS education hours that count toward your education goal. Live HFMA programs also offer offer CPE credits for members. Access  live and recorded  on-demand webinars and  eLearning Self-Study courses from your home or office. Most webinars are free to members, and e-learning courses offer exceptional value. 

Don't forget the  2014 Virtual Conference—hours for the April 24 conference will count for the 2013-14 DCMS year. Non-members who sign up for the April conference pay only $155 for the conference and it includes membership through May 31, 2015, so your chapter gains a member for this year and next year plus education for every HFMA program that new member attends.
