Final Presidential Message for 2021

CPHIMA Board, Committee, and Members,

As this will be my last email to you as President of CPHIMA, I wanted to thank you for being a part of this amazing association. It has been my honor to serve you as President for the past year, and I will continue to assist next year as your Past President.

This year threw us some curve balls, but your resilience was noticed and appreciated. We have all learned how to navigate remotely as we have met virtually and conducted our education sessions as recordings as opposed to being on-site. Although I miss meeting in person, we now know there may be times when meeting by a different platform can increase participation and be more convenient for all.

I am very pleased with everything we accomplished this year but especially the two items below:

  • Our educational sessions and our brave speakers who couldn’t interact with an in-person audience as usual. Thank you for trying something new and succeeding.
  • The number of nominees on our ballot this year – this alone demonstrates our continued passion to promote our local organization.

Finally, a huge thank you to the Board and Committee Members for approaching this year with courage and an open mind.

Thank you,

Tami Bowman
