Dear members and subscribers,

I am honored to serve as President of BC Health Information Management Professionals Society for 2018/19. After serving as your Conference Chair, Secretary and Director at large for the last few years, I have had the opportunity to engage members, sponsors and partners on how we can best support you. I am looking forward to implementing some of the feedback we have received such as increased networking opportunities, explore partnership opportunities and leverage technical solutions to increase outreach. In order to achieve our goals we have increased the board compliment from nine to eleven board members and have structured board roles to ensure all strategies are covered and aligned. We have also increased our online presence and developed a formal communications strategy.

Our educational symposiums continue to be highly sold out events, creating value for our members and sponsors and attracting high caliber speakers. Feedback from attendees, speakers and sponsors have been extremely positive. To enable continuing success we will be developing Special Advisors to the Board Team and Volunteers at Large Program to increase expertise, knowledge and capacity for strategic approaches.

Our AGM in April 2018 was a great success with our adding new board members, Brian Lefebvre and Ingrid Collet. We thank retiring board members, Candice Jiang and Jude Rebello. We are also delighted to announce Anushka Premji-Osman as our Vice President and thank Alain Guez, moving to role of Past President.
