Message from the President
With summer in full swing, I hope that you have had the opportunity to slip in a little vacation time and enjoy some time away from work!! If not, you need to do so and get refreshed. Maybe you can’t take a full week off from your busy schedule but I do hope you can work in a long weekend to relax.
July 1st started a new fiscal year for ArHIMA in which all newly elected board members and committee chairs assumed their roles. Recently, the board issued a survey to our members in an effort to assist with planning for the year and received good feedback. Thank you to everyone who participated and shared your thoughts especially pertaining to the Offshoring concerns for our profession. The board and committee chairs will discuss the survey results at the next board meeting that will be held August.
The AHIMA Leadership Symposium will be held July 14-15 in Chicago, IL that Sara Daniel, Melinda Wilkins, Jennifer Horner and I will be attending. Material will be shared at the August board meeting and disseminated to the membership thereafter. Be sure to frequently visit the ArHIMA website, Arkansas Engage Community, and watch for email blasts that will contain pertinent information in regards to our profession. Access the “Contact” link on ArHIMA if we can be of assistance to you.
