CtHIMA Board of Directors News

This past year as we all worked through the unprecedented challenges of the pandemic both personally and professionally, the CtHIMA Board also faced challenges as did many of our fellow CSAs. In the face of it, the board worked diligently to continue to provide quality educational opportunities virtually or on occasion, face to face aligned with social distancing (when allowed).

We are proud to say due to the generosity of our business partners and vendors we were able to achieve a great deal of educational opportunities virtually, even as the pandemic continued to be an ever-present topic of discussion and concern. As a country, we are beginning to see progress as we embark on the “new normal” a little at a time.

With that said, the CtHIMA would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of our Board of Directors who continued to be present and work together to serve our CSA members even as their term technically, had ended.

Our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to each and every one of them for their continued service above and beyond their initial term. Most notably our 2nd year directors (for whom this was their third year!), Sabrena Gregrich, MBA, RHIA and Nora McRoberts, RHIA.

As the 2021-2022 year is upon us, we would like to welcome two new directors to the board, Moses Terrell Adgers and Anna Chick. Both Moses and Anna come to the board with a long history of experience in the field of health information management, business and education. Their various fields of expertise will be a benefit to the board and our members as we begin to put together the strategic plan for the coming year.

Though it has been a challenging year for everyone, we are excited about the prospect of embarking on new opportunities for education and networking in the season to come. Please be sure to reach out to us if you would like to volunteer or suggest educational topics of interest.
