President's Message

I would like to begin my term as President of the Northeastern Pennsylvania HFMA Chapter by stating what a privilege and honor it is to serve. Through my time as an officer I have had a front row seat observing how much has been accomplished by the past presidents. I know I have big shoes to fill and I hope to continue the growth and success this chapter has experienced. I believe a true leader can only succeed by having a strong, dedicated team to rely on for support. I am confident our chapter’s greatest resource is the dedication of our volunteers. From officers, to board members, to committee chairs and members, these volunteers devote countless hours assuring not only that our chapter is good standing, but all of our events are fulfilling for our membership both professionally and personally. I know we have a full slate of events planned this year that will be relevant and rewarding. I look forward to interacting and meeting all of you at our events throughout this year. I believe that the relationships developed through my time with HFMA are invaluable. I have been able to meet and connect with many people in the healthcare industry that have bestowed upon me great guidance and insight that I would not have gotten without my participation in this organization. With so many changes in healthcare and at such a fast pace, HFMA has never been more important to making sure you and your organization are informed and educated to meet the needs of the industry. Again, I am looking forward to meeting you all and am always available if anyone has questions or would like to get involved in our chapter.

Thank You,
Michael Ferguson
2019-2020 President
HFMA Northeastern Pennsylvania Chapter
