On behalf of the North Carolina Chapter of HIMSS Board of Directors, I’d like to personally thank you for your membership and dedication to the advancement of healthcare. The board focuses on providing tools, resources, and professional development programs to assist you with your professional goals. I encourage you to visit our website and LinkedIn for regular updates about upcoming events, resources, and opportunities for involvement. You’ll also begin receiving a monthly newsletter to keep you informed.

During our current fiscal year there are many ways for you to engage with the chapter, such as attending an event, volunteering to host or coordinate a meeting, or speaking to a group of college students. You may also consider serving on a committee or Workgroup that piques your interest, such as Programming, Sponsorship, Advocacy, Outreach, Cyber Security, Informatics, Emerging Leaders, or DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion).

We feel confident you will enjoy the many opportunities our North Carolina Chapter has curated to network and engage with your peers. If you are interested, please do not hesitate to reach out.

And – Please join us at our Spring Social – Data Sharing and Patient Privacy event on May 1, 2024, and be sure to mark your calendar for our Annual Conference, October 10-11, 2024, at Lumina Wrightsville Beach.

I look forward to hearing from you!
