President's Message
Pamela M. Sinclair, FACHE

THEF members and colleagues,

It is time for the THEF Board to change for the New Year 2012. I am happy to announce the new 2012 THEF Board of Directors, who are as follows: Sam Seifert, President; Wendy Hicks, President-Elect; Preston Hammock, Secretary-Treasurer; Vivian Langley, Director; Sherry Nance, Director; Anthony Potter, Director; and Pamela Sinclair, FACHE, Immediate Past President.

THEF's quarterly educational session and annual meeting was held at Grandover again this year on November 9. The speaker was attorney Jodi Knox from Womble Carlyle, who gave us a Healthcare Law update. This was a very interesting and informational event, with all the recent and pending changes coming in the Medicare and Medicaid systems. Healthcare continues to be a challenging professional career, which makes organizations like THEF so important to be able to grow our peer group to have discussions and positive interactions about how others are handling the difficult environment we often find ourselves in.

Stay tuned for our next quarterly educational session, which will likely be in February 2012.

I hope to see you at our next quarterly event.

Pamela Sinclair, FACHE
2011 THEF Board of Directors
