Message from Our Chapter President

Welcome Houston HIMSS members!

We recently announced the new FY2017-2018 Houston HIMSS Chapter Board of Directors, and we are thrilled to have such a strong team engaged to lead and facilitate programs this year.  

Each year, the Board of Directors meets to plan for the coming year. This year, we are focusing on the following three areas to promote stability and growth:

  1. Programs/Education - Our goal is to continue to enhance the quality of programs and education activities, in keeping with the HIMSS mission to educate Health IT professionals. We will continue to have monthly lunch and learns, networking events and special events to enhance the membership experience.
  2. Revenue - Our goal is improve the financial sustainability of the chapter by providing high quality events. In order to meet our financial goals, we will be hosting our first Golf Tournament and CIO Forum. We will participate in the Texas Regional HIMSS conference held in San Antonio by providing guidance, support and resources to make the event successful.
  3. Membership - We will continue to expand membership by partnering with our organization affiliates to understand their needs and execute on feedback from current members on how we can improve as a chapter.

As your Chapter President, I will focus my efforts on working with our Board of Directors, volunteers, and members at large to make sure our events are educational and provide value to the Health IT community.

Now over 1,100 members strong and growing, your local Houston HIMSS Chapter is proud to be growing with you. We are continually looking for people who are interested in volunteering their time and skills to help in various aspects of our chapter. If you are interested, please email me at to volunteer!

As you can see, we will be involved in many events throughout the year so keep checking our Calendar of Events for updates and announcements! On behalf of the 2017/2018 Houston HIMSS Board, we are excited for the upcoming year ahead and look forward to networking with you at one of our many events!
