President’s Message

From: Nancy Smith

President HFMA – Michigan Great Lakes Chapter

Dear Michigan Great Lakes member,

As calendar year 2020 comes to an end, on behalf of the board, I wanted to take a moment to Thank You, our members, for your continued membership and engagement during this challenging year.  We recognize that 2020 has been a year like no other in our lifetimes and we are so grateful that you have continued your membership with us.

As an organization, we have successfully transitioned to one Michigan chapter.  We have learned how to operate without the benefit of in person interaction and we continue to adapt and adjust to the ever changing environment of COVID-19.  We have worked together to transition all events to a virtual platform, doing so in order to continue to bring local educational and networking opportunities to you.  While at the same time, we continued to participate with and offer education through the region 6 webinars.  We hope that you have been able to take advantage of at least one, if not more, of these offerings.

As we look to the new year and new beginnings, we are excited about the recent positive vaccine news, although we recognize that we still have a long road ahead of us.  To that end, we continue to plan virtual events during the first half of 2021.  This includes our popular women in leadership event that will take place on January 20, 2021.  We encourage you to check it out and hope you are able to join us for this event!

Wishing you and yours a peaceful and blessed end to 2020.
