Message from Sponsorship Chair:

Hello, my name is Brandon Haynie and I am the Sponsorship Chair for Georgia HIMSS and I would like to ask for your support on this committee so that we can accomplish the fundraising goals that will provide scholarships for students, advanced training and educational events for hospital IT staff. Each committee member will have a small group of existing and target sponsors that they will be responsible for contacting and talking about the current sponsorship opportunities with. The target goal of this position would be 1-2 hours per month with the possibility of a little more around the Spring Gala. As a committee member, each person will get the opportunity to share their vision and input into this committee and give back to their community through their service to support the Georgia Chapter of HIMSS. It’s also a great path to get noticed for a position on the Board of Directors.
