The Young Professionals Committee focuses on fostering a professional network and increasing industry knowledge for our future healthcare leaders. The Committee provides an opportunity for members to become better acquainted with HFMA, the MA-RI Chapter and each other, and to network for business sharing, career opportunities and industry insight.

During the year, the Committee will plan and execute the New to Healthcare Seminar in the fall, as well as a spring networking event. The Committee will be responsible for reaching out to local colleges and universities to educate students on the benefits HFMA membership and the Chapter events. Participation may include meeting with professors and students at job fairs or department events. Opportunities for interns will also be explored each year.

During the fiscal year, the Committee will contact a minimum of four (4) colleges and universities to increase awareness. A minimum of six (6) conference calls will take place during the course of the year. The goals will include planning and executing events for the “Young Professionals,” which may include legacy members with whom to network.

Participants on this Committee have the opportunity to become better acquainted with the Organization, its administrative functions, and opportunities for business networking and socializing with their peers and others who have helped to advance the mission of the Massachusetts-Rhode Island Chapter.

The Committee will be responsible for meeting/exceeding the required National HFMA requirements for Networking and Innovation.
