Spring 2017

Greetings everyone and Happy Spring to all!

We had a great meeting in March. There were a lot of new faces at the last meeting and I hope to see them again soon. David Forbes from Mercy Medical Center gave a great presentation entitled “Own Your Own Contracts” and garnered a lot of positive feedback. We always encourage local presentations, especially from our MASHMM members, as it gives a personal and relatable understanding to current trends that we face in the healthcare industry.

The second MASHMM meeting for this year is scheduled on Friday, June 2nd. We will send out information on the place and time in the very near future. Our guest speaker for the event will be Mr. Anibar Basu, who has presented for us before. The title of his presentation is "Markets, He Wrote: Looking for Clues into the Economy's Direction." His presentation will provide detailed discussions of global, national and regional economies using the most up-to-date data available. As a reminder, we will be collecting gently used business attire at each of our meetings for Maryland New Directions as part of our chapter’s efforts to give back to the community. Please see the MASHMM Professional Clothing Drive flyer for additional information on our efforts.

As a reminder, this year’s AHRMM Annual Conference will be held July 23rd-26th in Washington, DC, so we will be seen as the host Chapter. I hope to see a large MASHMM attendance as most of us we will not have to worry about flight expenses. Please register for the event at There is an early registration discount if you register by May 15th. If you are currently not an AHRMM member I would encourage you to join as it helps for us to retain our Platinum status and offers other benefits, opportunities and discounts for educational programs that MASHMM may not have.

On behalf of the board we look forward to continuing to bring you speakers, venues and the camaraderie that comes with being a MASHMM member. We still have a few positions on the Board that need to be filled. Specifically, we are still searching for someone to fill the President Elect position. Additionally we will have positions opening up for 2018 in Treasurer, Secretary and some committee chairs. I would strongly encourage you to contact me if you have even the slightest desire to be president of our prestigious chapter. And your ideas, questions, or concerns regarding MASHMM activities are always welcome so please feel free to contact me or any other member of the Board.
