Happy April, Vermont!

President-Elect – serves for two years as an active Board member and under the guidance of the current President to support all activities as defined in the Bylaws as well as to assist with planning for member education through meetings and events.

As the current President-Elect and former treasurer, one of the most satisfying things I have taken away from volunteering with AHIMA is the networking. I have made contacts all over the United States, which has been a great resource for my day job as well.
Volunteer to run for a position and help lead VTHIMA into the future. Nominations will be open until May 30th, with elections held on June 15, 2020.
Tri-State Meeting Postponed Until September 20-22
Given the current pandemic, the Boards of New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine have unanimously agreed to postpone the Tri-State meeting originally scheduled for May 17-19 until September 20-22 at the same venue. In addition, the planning committees will create virtual content if needed. If we do need to cancel the in-person meeting in September, the virtual content will be made available to you to ensure that you can get your CEU’s. We have already secured the September date with Lynn Kuehn to provide the full day PCS session!
- If you have already registered, you do not need to do anything, your registration will be transferred to the new date.
- If you cannot attend in September and wish to have your registration fee refunded, please submit your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not dispute your credit card charge. A refund will be issued to you. KnowledgeConnex is unable to process refunds due to the volume of requests.
If you have already made hotel reservations contact the hotel directly by phone 1-800-622-6455 or online at www.millfalls.com to move your reservations to the new dates.
In these uncertain times, the NHHIMA Board wishes you good health.
