NC ASHRM President’s Message
Hello NC ASHRM Members,
I am both honored and excited to have the opportunity to serve as your 2024 NC ASHRM Chapter President. I look forward to working with our members and Board of Directors.
I would like to extend a special thank you to Tracey Wilson, the 2023 President for her outstanding leadership and dedication to our chapter over the past year. Thank you, Tracey, for your mentorship, hard work, and commitment as our President.
On behalf of the NC ASHRM Chapter, I would like to recognize our outgoing Board members: Katrina Jackson and P.K. Shere. Katrina began serving as President-elect at the beginning of 2020. Because of the pandemic, Katrina’s term was extended as President-Elect for two years until she was able to fulfill her role as President in 2022 and immediate past president in 2023. Thank you, Katrina, for your contributions in making NC ASHRM a stronger organization! P.K. served on our board from 1/1/21 to 12/31/23 as the legislative committee chair. Thank you P.K. for your hard work and dedication to our chapter. I would also like to welcome our new Board members, Becky Lowman and Crystal Wilkins. On behalf of the NC ASHRM Board, we look forward to working with each of you.
Over the past year we held two in-person conferences with a total 23 continuing education credit hours for our members. We had wonderful presentations from many of our members as well as from experts outside of NC ASHRM. I would like to thank all members who are involved in activities that support our mission. This includes conference planners, attendees, speakers, volunteers, and sponsors, as well as our board and committee members. Your dedication and involvement are essential to the success of our chapter. This is truly a team effort.
I would also like to thank our generous long standing and new NC ASHRM sponsors. We appreciate their commitment to our mission and efforts to provide quality education to Healthcare Risk Management professionals. Our ability to provide meaningful educational conferences to our members would not be possible without their generous sponsorships and time commitments.
We look forward to continuing our in-person conferences in 2024. The Spring Conference will be held at the Holiday Inn Resort Lumina, Wrightsville Beach on April 24-26, 2024, and the Fall Conference at the DoubleTree Hotel Biltmore, Asheville on November 13-15, 2024. Registration information will be posted on the website.
I look forward to working with you, seeing you at our upcoming 2024 conferences and connecting with you virtually on our webinars.
Sonya Conner, BSN, RN, CPHRM
