PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Lisa Mathews, HFMA Florida Chapter President 2016/2017  

Lisa Mathews, HFMA Florida Chapter President 2016/2017
 

Welcome to the 2016 – 2017 Florida HFMA Chapter year!  I want to begin by saying it is both an honor and privilege to serve as this year’s Chapter President and to have the opportunity to give back to an organization that has given so much to me over the years.  Before I discuss our goals for this year, I want to thank Chris Durkin and his leadership team for a great 2015 – 2016 Chapter year!  It was fabulous to see Chris and our Florida Chapter recognized at the ANI event in Las Vegas with several awards for the past year’s achievements.  Year over year we continue to raise the bar; and I can’t help but be excited over what lies ahead for our great Chapter!

The theme I have chosen for this year is “Better Together,” inspiring, learning, and connecting.  I found this to be especially fitting for our Chapter since we have so many volunteers who are passionate about making a difference and helping our Chapter to thrive. We join HFMA as individuals but truly are better together!

This year, in addition to achieving all of the National Goals outlined in the Chapter Balanced Scorecard, we will place heavy emphasis on innovation.  Striving to innovate in how we deliver education, how we communicate with members, how we grow and retain members, and how we continue to remain the premier membership organization for healthcare financial management executives and leaders.  Many of the new ideas around these areas are already taking shape and will be rolled out throughout the year.  Thanks in large part to the dedication of the many volunteers who serve this Chapter and are committed to continuously improving and striving for more!  As we focus on innovation this year, I welcome ideas and suggestions for improvement from everyone and strongly encourage individuals to volunteer in areas of interest to you.  Together, I am confident we will achieve and exceed our goals.

I hope to see many of you in person at our Fall Conference in Delray Beach.  In addition to great education and networking events, we will launch a few new capabilities designed to enhance the overall experience at our statewide conferences.

In closing, thank you again for allowing me to serve as President for this great Chapter I am so proud to call my home Chapter.
