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:


  • Attend monthly board meetings and report on committee activities.
  • Serve as the Board Liaison for the committees assigned. Monitor and report to the Board about the committee activities on a monthly basis.
  • Ensure that the committees follow the General Committee Responsibilities.
  • Attend the committee’s initial organizational meeting.
  • Select next year’s Committee Chairpersons and Co-Chairpersons for each committee for which you are the Board Liaison. The names should go to your Chapter Officer Contact.
  • Develop future leaders and provide a list of potential Board Members and Committee Chairpersons.
  • Attend social functions, annual meeting, and functions such as New Members Breakfast and educational program.
  • Recruit new members and encourage members to advance.
  • 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 Newsletter.
  • Involve all chapter members and have fun.
