NC ASHRM President’s Message 2022
Dear NC ASHRM Members,
It is a privilege to serve as your President for the 2022-year term. I joined the NC ASHRM Board as your vice-president two years ago. Within a few short months, we were facing an unprecedented event together, the Covid pandemic. Fortunately, our chapter has not only survived this devastating public health crisis, but we continue to thrive. I am grateful to our immediate-past president, Sheila Elliott for her two-years of leadership during this crisis. I am honored to follow her example and am grateful for her mentorship and continued contributions to our Board.
As a chapter, we have faced the challenges of the last two years, utilizing the skillset of healthcare risk professionals. We leveraged our ability to face crisis and mitigate risk for the organizations and communities we serve. We maintained our commitment to this chapter and our purpose, “to advance the development and role of the professional practice of healthcare managers”. We did all of this with the support of each of you, our engaged members.
NC ASHRM members have been generous with their skills and resources making it possible to provide virtual educational events throughout 2021, including a very successful 2021 Fall Education Series. Our committee volunteers collaborated to create quality programs to support our healthcare risk managers. Our loyal and committed sponsors have continued to support our chapter to ensure that quality education continued to be available. Thank you sponsors!
In 2022, we held our first in-person Spring conference in two years! I look forward to being together again for our Fall conference, November 9-11, 2022, in Asheville, NC (see our Education page for registration and hotel room reservation information). It is with optimism and hope that we look to the future of our chapter. If you are not currently a member, I hope you will spend some time on our website to appreciate all that this chapter can provide to enhance your healthcare risk management professional development. If you are a healthcare risk professional, please consider joining us, we are here to support you and your professional growth. Please, do not hesitate to reach out to any of our board members with questions regarding our chapter at the following link: Board of Directors - North Carolina ASHRM (nc-ashrm.org).
