Winter 2017 Newsletter ♦ President's Message
Happy Holidays NorCal HIMSS Members!
This is always a very busy time of the year for most people, and for our NorCal HIMSS Chapter, that is no exception. We are just coming off of our Annual CxO Summit, our first educational program of the year, at which our event committee co-chaired by Nick Steinback and Santosh Mohan brought about an incredible speaker lineup designed to facilitate productive dialogue and accelerate collaboration between CIOs, CMIOs, IT leaders and their non-IT executive colleagues. This was our third event for the fiscal year, and we are happy to report that it was a sold out success just like the first two!
I know I have said this before, but it truly takes a village to put on the programs we do for our membership base. I want to take the time to thank all of our dedicated volunteers on our esteemed Board of Directors, as well as our committee members for their tireless efforts. It is one thing to have an amazing idea, but it is a completely different set of skills to be able to execute and make those ideas come to life. So thank you to all of those individuals making incredible things happen for our Chapter and moving the dial forward!
As our chapter continues to grow, it is necessary to continue to add volunteers to our committees and our board. If you are interested in volunteering for the Chapter, please visit our website for further information. We have immediate needs for our Membership Committee, MeetUps, Day of Events, and Social Media. Also, please mark your calendars for upcoming events listed on our website. The next educational program will be our annual Innovation Conference and Showcase on January 12. It has sold out for the last four years in a row, so get your tickets now before it is too late! In addition, please come visit us at HIMSS National in Orlando, Florida. We will be hosting a reception on the convention floor on February 21 from 4:30-6pm for all our members in attendance. Registration will be open soon, and tickets will go fast!
Wishing you all a very merry holiday season, and I look forward to seeing you at our future events in 2017!
NorCal HIMSS Chapter President
