National Advisory Council

The National Advisory Councils (NAC) provide professional perspective to the Association on thought leadership topics important to HFMA members. The structure for these councils is flexible and may change somewhat each year depending on HFMA’s strategic needs. Appointments will be made to each of these three councils from individuals who are active in their profession as well as HFMA volunteers who are knowledgeable in the executive, payment and reimbursement, or patient financial services/revenue cycle subject areas.

The NAC consists of directors from the National board and 24 appointed members who serve staggered two-year terms who focus on key issues facing the healthcare industry and the Association. These councils meet two times a year.
