HFMA Organization Overview
The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) is the nation’s leading membership organization for more than 64,000 healthcare finance professionals employed by hospitals, integrated delivery systems, managed care organizations, health plans, physician practices, accounting and consulting firms and revenue cycle partners.
HFMA is guided by an elected body of volunteers at both the local chapter and national levels. The HFMA National Board of Directors is comprised of 17 elected members, along with 27 members appointed to serve on councils and committees which provide guidance on timely legislative and regulatory issues, review HFMA programs, and solicit feedback from other members across the country.
The chapter is the fundamental level of the organization, providing the primary service offerings and volunteer opportunities for individual members. Sixty-four chapters are chartered, but not separately incorporated, in the United States and Puerto Rico. Each chapter operates in accordance with its individual constitution and Bylaws. Chapter affairs are managed by elected volunteer officers and directors.
HFMA chapters are organized into 11 regions, each providing an intermediate organizational grouping within which chapters are encouraged to grow and develop. With 64 chapters combined into 11 regions, each region serves an average of 5,000 members among 5 to 6 chapters.
The primary mission of HFMA is providing timely, relevant and informative educational programs and networking opportunities to its healthcare finance professional members. Our Nevada chapter’s programs enable members to maximize the benefits of their HFMA membership. Our chapter’s success hinges on the contributions of our volunteer members; but we need your help in volunteering as an active participant on a Chapter committee.
Becoming an active participant in the Chapter helps you expand your skill set, gain knowledge, build new relationships, strengthen current relationships, foster invaluable contacts and develop friendships as you plan and execute educational seminars and workshops, as well as social and networking events.
Your level of involvement is up to you, whether a few hours per month writing an article or assisting on an educational or social committee, or a longer commitment such as chairing a committee or even serving on the Board of Directors. Our Chapter knows how busy you are with family and career responsibilities. Therefore, we conduct most of our Board and Committee meetings virtually using online video web hosting, allowing you to participate from your office or home. Whatever level you decide, your participation will be personally and professionally rewarding. Committee participation will enhance your professional development and team-building skills while increasing your value to your employer. You will have an opportunity to network with colleagues, clients and vendors, as well as with local and national industry leaders. Come be part of the fun!
