WHIMA Board of Director Meeting Highlights

The WHIMA Board of Directors met on April 9, 2017.  Highlights of the meeting:
  • Emmy Johnson, RHIA was elected President-Elect in the 2018 election, resulting in a vacancy of the 3rd year Director on the 2018-19 WHIMA Board. Per current WHIMA Bylaws, the Board is responsible for filling this vacancy. Terianne Brunner, RHIA, incoming 2nd year Director, was appointed by the Board to fulfill the role of the 3rd year Director in 2018-2019 and 2019-20. With the transition of Terianne to 3rd year Director, a vacancy resulted in the 2nd year Director. By majority vote, the Board appointed Angie Dibble, RHIT for one year to fill the 2rd year Director in 2018-2019.

    The appointment of Angie Dibble, RHIT as 2nd year Director for 2018-19 resulted in a vacancy on the Nominating Committee. Amy Hoaglund, RHIA, the recently elected alternate on the Nominating Committee in 2018-19, will fill that vacancy on the Nominating Committee.
  • WHIMA Financial Guidelines were revised in regards to student member discounts for WHIMA sponsored educational meetings. Student members will now receive a 50% discount on registration fees to all WHIMA conferences and workshops.
