Fall 2017 Newsletter - A Recap on HIMSS NorCal Summer and Fall Socials
By Jason Johnson, Programs Committee Chair and Lauren Mock, Innovation Committee Chair
It was another great year at Rosenblum Cellars in Jack London Square for our 11th Annual Summer Social to celebrate our fiscal year-end. It was the perfect time to celebrate everything we have accomplished as a chapter in the past year and an opportunity to look forward to the next.
We have been celebrating at Rosenblum for the past two years, and it is a favorite waterside locale in the East Bay. We enjoyed the company of 75 attendees, including new chapter members and non-members, underneath the warm summer sun in an intimate setting.
Throughout the evening, business cards were exchanged, new partnerships were created, and follow-up meetings were planned. A special thanks to those who joined us, to Okta for their generous sponsorship of the event, and to Rosenblum for being a great partner in our celebration.
We hope we caught you at our Annual Fall Social and FY18 kickoff at Perry’s and for a lively Giants vs. Dodgers game at AT&T Park this past September! It was a huge success with 80 attendees and a great networking opportunity and chance to catch up with each other at summer’s end. This was our sixth year at the ever popular Perry’s location on the San Francisco Embarcadero.
Huge thanks to Mimecast, Modis, CureIs, and CIO Cloud Consulting for their generous sponsorship of our social!
These events are a great reminder that Health IT is an incredibly diverse field. Because each vertical has so much activity, it is very easy to get caught up in our own world. However, our socials provide a unique opportunity to venture outside the typical day-to-day.
We are so proud of the vibe that our two annual socials create to foster the HIMSS NorCal Chapter community spirit, and we look forward to them and seeing you every year!
