President Message

I am excited to begin my role as 2019-2020 President of HFMA San Diego-Imperial Chapter. As a volunteer of our chapter for the past 6 years, I have had the opportunity to work in many of the chair roles which has given me the perspective on areas where we excel as well as where we can improve and grow. Our 2019-2020 National Chair Michael Allen’s theme this year is: “Dare You to Move”, DY2M. Michael Allen explains that DY2M, “At its core, is about being stuck and having this ongoing tension between where we are and where we know we should be. It is about making yourself uncomfortable so you can grow. It is about getting used to saying the “F word” — failure — and embracing it as a path to something better. It is about being vulnerable and dropping this idea that we have to be perfect.“

Our chapter is embracing DY2M and exploring new ways of engaging our membership and trying out new events. Besides adding a Spring One Day Conference this past May, we are trying out some new educational formats; Our Summer Series with in person short Lunch and Learns, A multi-track Fall Conference, and continuing our Regional Web Based Lunch and Learns. These events are already in the works and we hope our chapter will see the benefit of these educational options. We also will be working to bring more sponsored opportunities for our Provider Members to attend our Region 10/11 Conference in Las Vegas this January. Having fun is part of HFMA as well, and socially we want to continue to bring the chapter together as well as increase networking opportunities. We are bringing back Del Mar Day at the Races with HFMA Southern California and will be adding additional Social Events throughout the year.

We embrace that we don’t have to be perfect, but we certainly want to try out new ways to bring you not only quality education but also social opportunities that will make our chapter vibrant.

Our chapter is extremely thankful for the ongoing support from our chapter sponsors. Without their support and continuous partnership, we would not be able to deliver the quality education and events to benefit our members. We greatly appreciate your ongoing support, and to improve our sponsor experience, we have added additional benefits and opportunities for sponsorship this year.

I always say that our chapter is small but mighty. We can say that we have had Regional Executives as well as a National Chair who have come from our chapter. Continuing to build on our legacy, this year, we have several past Presidents who are part of a New Committee Mentor Program sitting on committees and sharing their knowledge and expertise with our current chairs and also acting as a sounding board. San Diego HFMA continues to move forward and become better with a growth mindset and I am grateful to be working with very talented and committed Board and Committee Volunteers. I appreciate you and thank you all for serving along with me.
