KHIMA Needs Volunteers

Hello KHIMA Colleagues and Friends,

As we all anxiously await our KHIMA Virtual Workshop in the next coming weeks, we are starting to plan for our next fiscal year. During this time, we are looking for help with our committees. Have you ever considered volunteering your time for KHIMA? Many years ago, I was very reluctant to volunteer. I was a young HIM professional that just wanted to come to workshops to learn, grow and network a bit. Feeling shy and unsure if I could possibly help with anything, I accepted an invitation to serve on a committee. It opened a door to learning and growing in ways I could have never imagined. I didn’t even realize that I would get to work and meet with people that would become my lifelong friends. To be surrounded by so many knowledgeable and great people, I continue to grow each year. It has truly been a privilege.

Below is a list of our Committees that we are looking for members to serve in the next fiscal year (July 2022 – June 2023):

  • Annual Meeting
  • Coding
  • Communications and Marketing
  • Education
  • Information Integrity
  • Recognition

Please visit our website Board of Directors/Committee Chairpersons (click on each Committee’s title for more information on what each committee’s responsibilities are to see which may be the best fit for you). If you would like to be considered for a volunteer role, please submit your information here.

I am looking forward to working with each of you this next fiscal year! We have exciting plans in store for our in-person Fall Meeting in September 2022 in Salina, Kansas, as well as our Joint Meeting with MoHIMA next Spring 2023. Please consider taking the time to volunteer. Your time and talent are just what we need to continue to move forward this next year and into the future.

Sincerely,

Jaime Richling, RHIA
