WHIMA Board of Director Meeting Highlights

At the December meeting of the WHIMA Board of Directors (BOD), the BOD discussed the method and process of communicating the decisions and activities of the BOD with the WHIMA membership. How do members know what is happening within the Association? There is a need for confidentiality of some Board activities/decisions and there is the need of WHIMA members to know what is happening within WHIMA and decisions being made by the elected leadership. There must be a balance. The outcome of this discussion was the BOD approved providing a high-level communication via e-Alerts and the Link e-Newsletter of activities/decisions that they deem would be beneficial to the majority WHIMA membership.

With that being said, here are the highlights from the November and December BOD Meetings:
  • The E-Communications team was dissolved and the duties of updating the website and social media has been transferred to the Executive Office Coordinator.
  • The 2019 Annual Conference is May 8-10, 2019 at the Central Wisconsin Convention and Expo Center in Rothschild, WI.
  • Speaker reimbursement for WHIMA members was increased to: free registration for the day of the presentation plus roundtrip mileage at IRS rate (currently .535/mile) OR $150 honorarium plus roundtrip mileage at IRS rate (currently .535/mile).
  • A 10% discount on vendor booth will be provided to vendors who also are contracted to speak at the WHIMA Annual Conference.
