Message from the President

Welcome to the 2018-19 New Jersey HFMA Chapter year!

I am honored to be your incoming President and wanted to start off by thanking all of YOU for your continued involvement and support of our Chapter. I’d also like to congratulate our immediate past President, Scott Mariani, and the rest of the team on a fantastic year. A few of these accomplishments include:

  • Over 21,000 education hours
  • 50 webinars and over 90 in person events
  • Charles F. Mehler Gold Award – Excellence for Education
  • Henry Hottum Award for Educational Improvement
  • Six Helen M. Yerger Special Recognition Awards

The HFMA National Theme for this year is Imagine Tomorrow and will be focused on innovative ways to achieve the Triple Aim by improving access, quality and cost. These are the same things we want to be focused on at a local Chapter level. Our incoming Board, Chapter Chairs and Co-Chairs met in late April for our annual leadership retreat to discuss how we "Imagine Tomorrow" and what goals and initiatives we want to pursue this year to get there.

Are you new to HFMA or just interested in getting more involved? Our website features a Committees page, http://hfmanj.org/Committees. I encourage you to check it out, pick a forum that interests you and participate in their next meeting. There is no cost to participate, no advance sign- up required and the educational and networking opportunities are immediate.

I'd like to thank our chapter officers, board members, committee chairs/co-chairs and committee members for volunteering to their valuable time to the Chapter and assisting me as your NJ Chapter President.

The Chapter website contains contact information for the 2018-19 leadership team, https://hfmanj.org/board.php / http://hfmanj.starchapter.com/images/committees1819.pdf. Please feel free to contact any of these chapter leaders with questions or for information on how to get involved.


Respectfully,

Erica Waller, FHFMA
President
