A Message from the President

Dear HFMA Colleagues,

I would like to thank you for your continued support of the HFMA Northeastern NY Chapter. When I joined this Northeastern NY Chapter a few years ago, I did not expect to become so quickly involved. What originally started as an unknown challenge and a group of strangers has become a gratifying experience and a new network of colleagues, but most of all friends. Working together, our volunteers have been able to consistently provide educational and social events allowing us all to take part in the benefits of being an HFMA member and attending a seminar.

Many of you have volunteered or have voiced an interest in taking part of the volunteering program. This program offers benefits revolving around networking, leadership skills, education and most importantly developing lasting friendships. By pooling our resources and sharing our experiences, we can continue to be a successful Chapter and provide the necessary information to further our growth in the industry. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our immediate Past President, Jason Allen for his year of service and also to thank all our Chapter’s Officers, Board and Committee members for their dedication and commitment in making our chapter a success once again.

To ensure the continued growth of our chapter we depend on you, our members, to volunteer and become actively involved as much as possible. I will continue to work hard as your President to make our chapter successful by being true to its mission and vision, but I won’t be able to do it alone and need your help. So if you are interested in volunteering please don’t hesitate to reach out to me, Jade Litchfield the President Elect or any committee or Board member and we will do our best to answer any questions or concerns you may have. You will be glad you took that first step. Together we can make this chapter the best in the Region!
