Dear WSHIMA Colleagues,
It is my pleasure to announce to you the results of the election of new board members to serve in the fiscal year 2020!
- President-Elect: Judi Hofman
- Delegate: Jill Burrington-Brown
- Delegate: Carrie Kaelin
- Director: Karen Youngblood
- Secretary: Bill Wong
- Treasurer: Farah Rehmat
I hope you will join me in congratulating these wonderful professionals who are willing to serve on the WSHIMA board in the coming year. I have been truly enriched by serving on this board and I hope that others share this sentiment. This is a responsibility supported by many learning opportunities and the advantage of collaborating with HIM professionals across the great state of Washington!
As a member of the WSHIMA board, members are more informed and in touch with decisions and strategy coming from AHIMA. Some members will travel to educational meetings and participate in lobbying our elected officials in Washington DC around healthcare policy issues. If you have never served on the WSHIMA board in the past, you may want to consider letting us know of your interest in the coming year. We always welcome new volunteers who are interested in serving on the board!
Paula E Dascher, RHIA
