President’s Message

Happy Fall to you all!  I wanted to update members on some of the activities of your ArHIMA Board of Directors and to urge you to contact us with any questions or suggestions you might have.  We will be glad to hear your thoughts and to accommodate where we can.  Spring convention will be in Fort Smith at the DoubleTree hotel, with room rates less than $100.  Our schedule will be back to the original half day Wednesday, full day Thursday, and concluding at noon on Friday.  The Program Committee has a tentative slate of speakers already and we hope to offer a variety of topics to benefit members in traditional and nontraditional settings.   Convention will be back in North Little Rock for 2021 and we are currently discussing a shared convention with Missouri for 2022. 

Five delegates attended the AHIMA House of Delegates meeting September 15, in Chicago.  I have included the HOD meeting summary from AHIMA below for your review of discussions and actions taken at the meeting. Click Here to read more!

I appreciate the opportunity to serve ArHIMA as your 2019-2020 president and I encourage you to contact me with your thoughts or concerns.
