Message from Your HCAT President

Samantha Kern, President

A message from your HCAT President discussing the upcoming event, board of director changes, and other information.

HCAT Members,

I’d like to start our newsletter with a Hail and Farewell. I’d like to thank Kelly Brown and Becky Schulkowski.  Kelly has been a dedicated and passionate member of our chapter and the Board for many years and in nearly every role and has taken a step back to focus on her family. Becky, President-Elect, accepted a promotion and has relocated to the Florida area. I am thankful for Kelly and Becky’s many hours of service to HCAT and the lasting impression they’ve made on our chapter. I’d like to congratulate Meredith Strand who was voted into the President-Elect role. Meredith most recently acted as Secretary to HCAT and has been an active member with HCAT and ACHE. I’d also like to congratulate JD McCoy on his election to the Secretary position. JD has been a volunteer with the Communications Committee for the past few years and was recently voted onto the Board. 

With these changes, HCAT has the opportunity to add a few members to the Board of Directors. If you are interested in this or would like to get involved on a committee or special project, please contact us at


Samantha Kern

HCAT President
