Regional Executives


Each year, chapter presidents-elect from each of HFMA's 11 regions elect regional executives to serve as their chapters' primary volunteer and policy link with HFMA National.

The role of the regional executive involves policy making and maintaining compliance authority over the Davis Chapter Management System (DCMS), monitoring the performance of chapters within the region, assisting chapter leaders in serving members, convening and organizing meetings of the regional leadership, fostering effective communications between HFMA National and the chapters, and expressing the needs and interests of the region's chapter leaders on the Regional Executive Council to the National Board and staff.
