Northern California Chapter of HIMSS
President's Welcome - FY20
As the President for the 2020 fiscal year that began on July 1, I couldn’t be more excited about what is coming. I have been a member of the Northern California Chapter Board of Directors since 2014 and in that time I’ve seen a lot of dedicated and talented leaders create one-of-a-kind events, networking social hours, and comprehensive educational content. This year, I want to build on the progress the Chapter has made. Over the last couple of years, we’ve more clearly defined our values, put time into rethinking our mission and vision, put on some incredible events, and recruited top industry talent to serve on our Board of Directors.
One of our core strategic pillars for this year is to solidify HIMSS Northern California as a preeminent brand for Healthcare Technology. One of the best ways we can do that is to focus on what we do best –organizing top-tier educational events with name brand speakers at a price that won’t break the bank.
We also want to make sure that our energy is spent on the right things at the right time, so we’re going to reimagine our event calendar this year. To do that, we’re using data and input from you all, our members, to figure out what you want to see from us. Even though our normal event calendar -- leadership-focused CXO Conference, consumer-technology and patient-focused ePatient Summit, and innovation-focused Innovation Conference and Showcase -- has been successful for the last several years, we want to keep our content, topics, and speakers current and fresh.
