Welcome to 
 Western Pennsylvania Chapter

President's Welcome


Looking Back

As my year as Western PA Chapter President comes to a close,  I must say that it has been quite an interesting year.  While we haven’t been able to meet in person, I hope that you all still found some value in the numerous webinars provided by the Association, our Chapter, and the Region.

I am grateful to have had Rich Nagy (President-Elect), Mark Schneider (Secretary), and Dan Bucci (Treasurer) serve in  the officer/leadership roles along side of me this year.  I greatly value their dedication, knowledge, and friendship.  I know the Chapter will be in good hands for 2021-22.

I would like to personally thank the board members who served during the past year:

  • Pat McKenna
  • John Andursky
  • Lynn Matusik
  • Darlene Hommer
  • Ryan Thompson
  • Denis Lukes

Finally,  thanks to the committee chairs and members – always appreciate your volunteer hours and insight.

  • Pat McKenna and Paul Horton – Programs Chair and Co-Chair
  • Ryan Thompson – Communications Chair
  • Nick Campano – Membership Chair
  • Ben Cochran  and Dan Simmons – Mentoring Chair and Co-Chair
  • Jeffrey Petrell  and John Bartolini – Sponsorship Chair and Co-Chair
  • Mike Garczynski – Certification and Founders Chair

I also would like to personally thank all of our generous Corporate Sponsors who stuck with us during the past year and also provided virtual events throughout the year.

Looking Ahead

Also,  I am a proud to announce the roll out of our new Chapter Website at  https://www.hfma.org/chapters/region-3/western-pennsylvania.html  Special thanks to Pat McKenna for leading this initiative for the Chapter.  We think this new site will be more user friendly and accessible for our members.

While my tenure as President ends, I look forward to working with the leadership team for the  2021-2022 Chapter Year and plan to be an active Past President.  Look forward to seeing you all live and in-person soon!
