Share your Knowledge Be a Mentor

In effort to share expertise across the region, CPHIMA has begun a mentor program.  The purpose of this program is to provide a resource for students, a new professional or interested others the opportunity to network with a seasoned professional in their area of interest and/or expertise. 

If you are interested in either serving as a mentor or in being mentored, please send the following information to Nathan McWilliams.  He will provide you with the name and contact information of an individual of like interest. 
  • NAME
  • AREA OF INTEREST (i.e., inpatient coding, outpatient coding, management, transcription, abstracting, etc.)

Volunteers needed for FY2012 CPHIMA Ballot Positions!!

The CPHIMA Nominating committee is currently in desperate need of board officers and committee chairs for FY2012 (positions begin 7/1/11).  The open officer positions are as follows:

  • President-Elect
  • Treasurer
  • Director
  • Program Director
There is urgent need for a President-Elect candidate and a Director candidate.  Committee chairs are not elected and do not appear on the ballot.  We have several committee chairs that will be open for FY2012, including arrangements, membership, and nominating.
CPHIMA recognizes that it can be hard to want, or find, extra time to volunteer.  But it’s exactly because of these challenges that the CPHIMA Board needs your help.  
Why Volunteer? 
When you volunteer you are giving something back to the HIM profession. What you may not realize is that volunteering also benefits you as an individual. There are many good reasons to get involved in CPHIMA. 
Some of the best benefits of volunteering 

  • Obtain 5-6 credits per education session for only $10
  • Travel re-imbursement for board meeting attendance
Additional benefits include:
  • Make new friends
  • Explore career and personal interests
  • Earn great recommendations for future employment or college applications
  • Develop marketable job skills
  • Build your resume
  • Enrich your knowledge
  • Uncover hidden skills and talents
  • Increase your self-confidence
  • Have fun
  • Make a difference
If you, or someone you know, are interested in running for one of these positions, please review the brief description of the duties and guidelines for each CPHIMA Officer and chair.  Then contact me, Nathan McWilliams at or 717-697-5512 ext. 106.
