Welcome to the Rochester Regional Chapter Website


President’s Message

Winter is here, and according to Punxsutawney Phil it will be here for another six weeks.   I hope you are all making the best of things and getting outside to play.  I’ve recently discovered that making a snowman is much harder than I thought.  One thing that brightened my day was the fact 70% of you are either very or extremely satisfied with your Chapter!  It was music to my ears, because your Chapter leaders have been working hard to bring an exceptional experience to you.

Many of you have taken advantage of the excellent education offerings that have been provided this year.  In addition to Regional webinars that allow you to get CPE while in the comfort of your office, the Chapter held its Annual Fall Institute and a Lean Six Sigma Revenue Cycle training.  We are not resting.  We have a packed education calendar for the next few months.  Please mark your calendars for the Chapter’s Annual Current Events session that will be held on March 28th at the RIT Inn & Conference Center.  We are also putting together a Long Term Care Annual Conference, the Annual Cost Report Road Show, and a joint event with the Rochester MGMA, which will be held on April 25th at Locust Hill and will feature HFMA CEO Joe Fifer.

The Community Service/Social Committee has put together several opportunities to get more involved and to meet fellow HFMA members.  From volunteering at the local soup kitchen to catching an Amerks game, there is something for everyone.

If you are still looking for more, we are always looking for people that are interested in a board, officer, or committee position.  Speaking from experience, it is a worthwhile endeavor, and you will have a direct impact on the Chapter’s operations.  If you are interested, please feel free to contact any of your current officers, board members, or committee chairs.

As always, please keep your eye open for the Chapter’s weekly e-mail updates.  There are many opportunities for you to learn via Regional webinars, serve your community, and socialize with your fellow HFMA members, and more opportunities are created each week.

Last but not least, I want to thank our sponsors.  We would not be able to offer the education, community service, or social events if we did not have your support.  Thank you.

Enjoy your winter!

Chris Harris, FHFMA
