Dear HFMA Oklahoma Chapter,

I want to share my thoughts as I am flying back from New Orleans for the 17th Annual Region 9 Conference. The past few months have gone by quickly. In that time, your chapter leadership team has been working together on planning for the future.

Last month Pete Sabal led our leadership team through a Chapter Advancement Team (CAT) facilitation. The takeaways from this facilitation was that our chapter is in a strong place both from a financial and member satisfaction perspective. I believe that our chapter is one of the best HFMA Chapters in the nation and is a serious contender for the prestigious Robert M Shelton award.

At the end of October, the programming committee met at The Skirvin to plan for our 65th Anniversary Annual Meeting. Thank you to Carole Taylor, Lisa Giovannetti, Shannon Cleburn, Louise Kiper, Phillip Smith and Tyler Bernier for all of your efforts. I am excited to see the 65th Anniversary come to life next year. Stay tuned for more details!

Finally, if you are interested in becoming more involved with the chapter, join us! I can’t tell you enough how rewarding my HFMA journey has been. You won’t regret the time you spend helping the chapter.

Best,

Scott Sanders
President
