The Georgia Chapter of HIMSS is Actively Seeking Volunteers
The GA HIMSS mission is to actively engage our members, sponsors, partners and legislators in improving health and health care in Georgia through healthcare information and management systems.
Our healthcare ecosystem involves providers, payors, vendors as well as legislators with the patient at the center. It is my hope that our volunteers are comprised of individuals that mirror this healthcare community. It is only through working collaboratively in this community that we can improve health and health care in Georgia through healthcare information and management systems.
I would like this year to be one of even more member involvement and collaboration. Please apply to the Board, become an event chair/speaker, join a committee, or share your experience. It is your opportunity to contribute your talents, learn from others, network, and advance professionally and personally.
This is your time to become an active part of a premier organization in Healthcare Information Technology. We are soliciting nominations for individuals who are interested in serving in the following capacities:
· Board Member - The time commitment for a board member consists of, at a minimum, attending four board meetings and two events for the 2017-2018 year as well as leading an activity for the chapter (e.g. Chairing of a Committee or assisting a Chair, leading an educational session, etc.)
· Committee Member – Committees include: Advocacy, Membership, Programs, Sponsorship, Communications, Professional Development – and it’s a great path toward a board seat!
· Subject Matter Expert - Speak at an event or sit on a panel.
· Volunteer Staff - for one or more events
