Welcome to the NDHFMA Website!

 

It is my extreme pleasure to serve as your 2017-2018 North Dakota HFMA Chapter President. Although I've only been a part of the North Dakota HFMA Chapter for five years, I have been an HFMA member since 2002 and have previously served on the Indiana HFMA Chapter Board of Directors. One of the many exciting things you will find is the outstanding collaboration between members, educational opportunities, and networking that takes place as being part of this chapter. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication from our Board of Directors and members alike to make it as successful as we can be.

Our HFMA National Chair, Carol Friesen, has chosen "Where Passion Meets Purpose" as this year's theme.  Ms. Friesen mentions that some days, we let the worries of changing payment models, presidents, and the endless list of challenges get in our way of living our story and making our mark with the gifts we've been given. The calling is a simple one of stewardship - lives, populations, relationships, and wealth. It is time for us to make our contribution and write the story for future generations. Answering the call, seizing the opportunity, and achieving meaningful outcomes demands an internal fire, unwavering commitment, and fearless perseverance for whatever it takes to make it a reality. Pursuing one's passion is an endeavor that demands our best. Finding that spot where passion meets purpose, however, regards with significance and meaning only meant to be told in your own story.

Your North Dakota Board of Directors and I are very excited about the coming year as we have several planned educational events lined up. We welcome your feedback throughout the year and looking forward to seeing many of you at the different events. Please make it a point to visit our website on a regular basis to keep up with things going on and look for updates through email too.

Lastly, please take time to thank and support our vendor partners who financially support our North Dakota chapter and allow us to do the things we do together as a TEAM. Without their support, our chapter would not be possible.

As always, thank you for being a member of our North Dakota HFMA Chapter

Trent W. Chastain

President, 2017-2018 North Dakota Chapter of HFMA
