Message from Our Regional Executive


Hello, there! My name is Nikki Harper and I’m the 2021-2022 Regional Executive (RE) for Region 7. I have been volunteering for HFMA for over 15 years. My original home chapter was McMahon-Illini (in Central Illinois).  Being a volunteer leader for HFMA is the best job in the world. It allows you the opportunity to meet the best people. No matter what your professional goals are, title and role for your day job, or place in life…there’s something for you at HFMA. Come join us!

And may I say…. Welcome to Region 7, where Midwest hospitality is at its finest! We appreciate you visiting our website, and hope you’ll be joining us in one of our many events that span our five chapters. Our region is incredibly collaborative and loves volunteerism, networking and dedication to quality education. Our region is comprised of five chapters:

  • First Illinois
  • Indiana Pressler Memorial
  • McMahon-Illini
  • Southern Illinois
  • Wisconsin

Please feel free to visit each of our chapter websites and attend our many events. As our current RE, I invite you to explore the opportunities. We are hosting a regional event October 23-25, 2022, and I look forward to seeing you there. In the meantime, check out our chapters' websites to learn more about their webinars, virtual events, live events, and volunteer opportunities. I welcome you to Region 7 and wish you the best!
