From the Desk of the ASHHRA Executive Director & IFD President
We say farewell to 2008 Board members Molly Seals, Amy Schultz, Nicole Morin-Scribner Laura Easton, and Lisa Schott, and thank each of them for their wonderful contributions to ASHHRA. We congratulate Bob Morrison, Maureen O’Keeffe, Barry Lindeman, and Karmen Reid as new Board members for 2009 and look forward to their contributions in the coming years. We were so fortunate to be guided by a terrific president, Jeanene Martin in 2008. Under Jeanene’s leadership ASHHRA brought increased value to you, ASHHRA members. You can be assured that ASHHRA will continue to be member-driven under the leadership of Dan Zuhlke in 2009. Given the ASHHRA governance structure, we are privileged to have Board members who represent the diverse and varied spectrum of the health care HR profession. Including all viewpoints has been valuable as we make critical decisions and move ASHHRA forward into the future, even in difficult economic times. We are also privileged to have members who are committed and dedicated to the health care HR profession. We value your feedback and encourage you to tell us what resources you need that will assist you in your workplace. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to provide feedback, or if you would like to discuss serving the profession by volunteering with ASHHRA on a committee or task force.
For information on IFD: The Institute for Diversity in Health Management has extended the deadline for responding to its benchmarking survey on the State of Health Care Diversity and Disparities to Jan. 19. AHA-member CEOs were e-mailed the survey in late October to help them assess and compare their hospital’s internal diversity efforts and identify areas that need further attention. The findings will also help the Institute recognize hospital leaders promoting diversity within health care. For more information, visit www.diversityconnection.org or e-mail email@example.com. The Institute is an AHA affiliate.
