The chapter leadership was presented with two awards at this
year’s Congress on Healthcare Leadership: the Chapter Merit Award and the
Sustained Performance Award. These
awards are a direct reflection of the hard work the board does to bring you all

and work with the chapter.

Our communication and
membership teams are always looking for new and creative ways to engage with
members and the community. We are working with Geekdom and The Health Cell to
provide monthly educational and networking events. Our first such event was in October this year
was a such a great success we plan to bring this partnership into 2018
providing opportunities for learning and collaboration – and each event is free
As this year closes out, and the new board members are voted
in, we will end with our strategic planning event as we look forward to 2018
and bringing bigger and better events and opportunities for our members.

this year and I know next year will only be better with Roxanne taking the
lead. Thank you all for your support
this year and I wish you each a blessed holiday season.
