Central Pennsylvania Chapter

President’s Welcome

It’s Time!  That is the theme set by our National Chair this year.  As we close out the previous year and plan the upcoming year, this message sinks in.  This past year was the first time in the past four we were fully able to meet in person.  I think a lot of people have missed the intimacy of actually meeting in person. There is certainly a time and place for virtual learning, but it was great to see members out and enjoying live education sessions.  We have been through a bizarre (well, maybe not so bizarre anymore) change in where people work, how they balance their professional and personal lives, and how they engage with colleagues, bosses, business partners, and friends.  It’s Time to get back to the quality live education and relationship building that HFMA provides!

I am honored to serve as this year’s president of the Central PA chapter of HFMA.  I would like to thank our past-president, Nick Barbera, for his leadership over the past year and his investment in myself and in the chapter.  I am pleased to announce Jonathan Shedlock will be serving as President-Elect, Jen Huff serving as Secretary, and Amber Schon serving as Treasurer.  We also have a dynamic Board of Directors who will work hard to provide leadership and engagement to the entire chapter.

Our goals this year are going to be centered around, but not isolated to:

  1. Quality Education – with a focus on developing our live events
    1. IT’S TIME to get out to a meeting!
  2. Engage Enterprise Members in the local chapter
    1. IT’S TIME to “Engage Local”
  3. Develop our Sponsorship Program
    1. IT’S TIME to effectively network and partner together

Please, challenge and engage the Officers and the Board this upcoming year.  We are here for you and want to make sure we are moving this chapter in the direction the membership wants it to go.  Get out to a meeting, volunteer for a small role at an education session, or inquire about a leadership opportunity with the chapter because IT’S TIME!  See you all throughout the year!
