To be sure you’re up to date on your local chapter happenings, please check your local chapter’s website for live meetings because there are a lot of great ones coming up!

Also, be sure to watch for the HFMA Region 8 webinar series.  These are the third Tuesday of each month. You’ll want to watch, too, for webinars offered by HFMA as these are excellent ways to stay up on industry changes. These are free to HFMA members and can be found at
Be sure to mark your calendar for the Region 8 Mid-America Summer Institute which will be in the Kansas City area August 6-8, 2018.  We have a great agenda planned for everyone and will be hosting our signature baseball outing when the Royals host the Cubs on Tuesday, August 7. Keep watching for more details! 

In addition, there is now an excellent promotion video put together by the HFMA national office entitled “Lead. Solve. Grow.” It is a terrific overview of our association and you may even see some of our Region 8 colleagues featured!  Take a look at the video by clicking https://youtu.be/7ULSlhf6AZE
