President’s Message

Lisa Hershey, RHIA
We will celebrate the first day of spring at our March education session on Friday, 3/20! Attending education sessions offers professional renewal and refreshment in the same way that the warmer weather and sunshine renew our bodies and spirits in the spring.
As an educator, I have the pleasure of inviting and encouraging students to attend their first regional education sessions. They consistently come away impressed with the educational opportunity but, even more so, with the networking experience. Thank you for your part in reaching out to and communicating with these up and coming HIM professionals at education sessions. 
In this fourth and final quarter of my term as CPHIMA President, we will offer educational events, elect our 2015-2016 Executive Board and incoming President, Mike Brensinger, will be seeking new involvement for committee members and chairs. As a member, you can get involved by:
  • Attending an education session (schedule below)
  • Voting for new Board members
  • Liking the CPHIMA Facebook page
  • Volunteering to serve as a committee member or chair
  • RENEWING your membership for 2015-2016. Dues for active members will remain at $20.

Pay it Forward

The PHIMA President, Laurie Johnson, has invited the regions to participate in a “Pay it Forward” event. Please join us in bringing donated items to the Friday, 3/20 CPHIMA Education session in Reading. Ideas for donations are listed below:
