Hello and welcome to the HFMA Nevada Chapter. I am Vanessa Couch-Laguana your chapter President for 2023-2024.
First and foremost, I’d like to thank our Immediate Past President Dave Schweer for his many years of leadership and support for the Nevada Chapter along with our outgoing board members for their continued service and volunteerism.
To our new leadership board, and in the words of our National Chair Dennis E. Dahlen, It’s Time! Time to rebrand, rebuild our team and cultivate what HFMA is truly about, Healthcare Financial Management education. Thank you for trusting me to lead you on this journey. This organization has so many great opportunities for our leaders and members to take advantage of and I am so excited to be a part of this pivotal time in the chapter’s growth and future success.
This year our chapter goals will be to share all the good things that an HFMA membership can offer. From certification, education, workshops, conferences, networking and engagement opportunities. If you are interested in becoming a member, please feel free to reach out to us via our chapter website.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer on one of our various chapter committees, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are always looking for ways to strengthen our team and to continue to be good stewards to the healthcare communities that we serve.
Please visit our website often for updates as we continue to share some of the events that we have planned for this upcoming year to meet you, provide education either virtually or at an in-person conference and or to network with you soon!
Before I close, I would like to take the time to personally thank some of the people who have been an important part of my HFMA journey as a past board member and past president of the Hawaii Chapter; Tammy Dumlao-Past RE, Ramona Hernandez-Immediate Past RE, Alanna Weaver-Past President Hawaii Chapter, Brenda Parinas-Current President-Hawaii Chapter and Jason Meyer- Past RE & Past President, Nevada Chapter. I would not be here today without your support, mentorship and guidance. I am truly grateful.
I look forward to serving all of you and meeting you real soon!
Vanessa Couch-Laguana, CRCR, CPC
