"Welcome to your Northern Colorado Health Information Association (NCHIMA) Chapter and welcome to 2020! "

Happy New Year and Happy New Decade! We are glad you are here! Welcome to the Roaring 20s! OK, maybe that was 100 years ago when the humble beginnings of Health Information Management first started back in 1928. We have definitely come a long way from Record Librarians to today’s diversity of job opportunities which includes Coding, Revenue Cycle Management, Health Informatics, Data Analytics, Information Governance and much more.

Here at NCHIMA, we hope to bring new and relevant, as well as, helpful conferences to help you in this new century and beyond. Our chapter works hard to bring our members information that will transform each other by connecting, networking and exchanging new ideas. Please consider joining our chapter or renewing your membership so we can continue to provide affordable ways to earn CEUs.

On that note, dues are $20 per calendar year. This only applies to the NCHIMA Chapter. However, as a member, you get a discounted fee for each conference, and you are able to vote for any new board positions that are available for the following year. Not only are you a valued member, but your opinion and ideas for items or topics that you would like to see are always welcome.

I want to thank the past president and volunteer board members for their direction and commitment and for their continued support. We are already meeting and planning the new schedule and events for the upcoming year.

Here is a glimpse of dates for you to mark your calendars and prepare for:

Spring – Friday, March 13 -- theme:  Finding your pot of gold
Summer – Friday, July 17 -- theme:  Hawaiin Luau
Winter – Friday, November 13 -- theme:  Winter Wonderland

On behalf of myself and the NCHIMA board members, we are committed to leading this organization and providing you with relevant, thoughtful, and fun conferences for years to come!  Thank you for your commitment and continued membership. We look forward to meeting you!
