Welcome to the Iowa Chapter of the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) website. Our Chapter’s mission is to provide professional development through educational programming, information dissemination, certification, leadership training, and networking. I am honored to be the Chapter president for the 2019-2020 year and look forward to building upon the successes of our past presidents.

My first goal for the year is to bring educational programing to all parts of the state and enhance our members’ experience. To accomplish this goal, we are offering three separate oneday, summer meetings in Council Bluffs (July 16th), Des Moines (July 17th), and Cedar Rapids (July 18th). See the Events tab for more details.

My second goal for the year is to engage our members, especially our early careerists, by increasing committee involvement and member volunteerism. There are so many ways you can become involved in the Iowa Chapter, whether it’s becoming a member of a committee, speaking on a panel, sitting on the board, or simply mentoring a new member. I encourage you to visit the About-Leadership tab for a listing of committee opportunities and reach out to me, an officer, or a board member for additional information. If you have been sitting on the sideline wondering how to get involved, we want to hear from you in 2019-2020.

Mike Allen, the 2019-2020 HFMA National Chair, has selected “Dare You 2 Move” as this year’s theme. I dare you to become more involved with the Iowa Chapter this coming year! I ensure you that you will get more out of the experience than what you put in.

I look forward to the upcoming year and appreciate the opportunity to serve this great chapter.
