President's Welcome - Jim Moynihan
Congratulations to the new HFMA SOCAL Board! Not all board members were able to attend the installation and awards dinner on May 30th but a great team is assembled and is kicking off the new Chapter year. The 2013-2014 chapter year is going to be exciting and challenging. The exciting part is that a great group of active committees are working hard to provide our members with superb educational programming. The challenging part is that the Affordable Care Act legislation kicks in with major changes starting in January, 2014. If that were not enough, ICD 10 implementation starts in October 2014. That is a lot of change impacting a lot of people. Our goal in the coming chapter year is to provide members with the tools to cope with all this change AND the demands of their jobs. All work and no play makes for a dull HFMA member so our Social and Networking committee is arranging for multiple networking events where you can make friends and have some fun! If you have not already done so please Friend the Chapter on our Facebook Group page and our Linked In Group page. And join the fun. There is so much more to the HFMA than just reading the magazine. Come to our events and join a committee that ties to your job requirements; CFO, Revenue Cycle, Government Programs, Educational Outreach just to name a few. If you are a member we have a plan to help you grow as a healthcare financial manager. See you soon!
Thanks to Richard Anzalone for this board picture and all the great pictures he has taken of our chapter events for many years!
