MASSACHUSETTS-RHODE ISLAND CHAPTER BOARD MEMBER RESPONSIBILITIES

The most common reasons people join HFMA, attend HFMA meetings and participate in the committees are to:

(1) learn and grow
(2) develop business contacts
(3) get to know people
(4) participate and achieve
(5) have recognition
(6) have fun

When asking a person to volunteer, don’t underestimate the commitment. It helps to stress the importance and potential achievements from participating. Give each person a task or assignment to involve everyone. The Board Member should be careful not to do everything themselves. Expect that the committee chairpersons and members will accomplish their task and establish a good feedback process to monitor the timetable.

Each Board Member is responsible for the following:

 

  • Participate in all Board meetings and conference calls.
  • Serve as the Board Liaison for the committees assigned. For further information see the “Board Liaison” document.
  • Help select next year’s Committee Chairpersons and Co-Chairpersons for each committee for which you are the Board Liaison.
  • Assist with the Corporate Sponsorship Drive
    • Provide list of potential sponsors to the Corporate Sponsorship Chair
    • Make follow-up phone calls to potential sponsors based on request from Corp Sponsorship Chair
  • Develop future leaders and provide a list of potential Board Members and Committee Chairpersons to the President-Elect.
  • Assist with membership recruitment and retention activities
    • Recruit new members and encourage members to advance.
    • Greet new members and non-members at education meetings
    • Make phone calls to new members and / or members at risk
  • Attend social functions, annual meeting, and functions such as New Members Breakfast and educational programs.
  • Lead by being involved in a committee in which you have a special interest.
  • Look for new ways of making the Chapter more effective and volunteer to make it happen.
  • Solicit and/or write articles for the Blog.
  • Involve all Chapter Members and have fun!
