How can we connect with other peers and professionals?

What does the membership meeting registration include?

How do you select presentation topics at membership meetings and webinars?

  • Your evaluation surveys after each membership meeting are beneficial. We rely on member feedback to begin securing future presenters and agenda items. Webinar topics are also selected the same.  Members may also submit presentation topic requests directly to any executive board member.  We make every attempt to secure presenters to meet your needs.

Does HAHIMA offer a mentor program?

  • HAHIMA currently does not have a formal mentorship program. If we have significant interest in this type of program, we will gladly consider building this program or facilitating some sort of information exchange among members.

What is the purpose and importance of the Evaluation Survey after meetings?

  • Members may earn CEUs after completing the evaluation survey.  The purpose of the evaluation is to receive invaluable feedback on individual presentations, in order to recognize and improve member needs. After completing an evaluation survey, the continuing education certification is released with earned CEUs.  The HAHIMA Board appreciates the feedback and maintains these records for recordkeeping purposes, to support awarded CEUs.
