They say that February is the border between winter and spring…
Let’s hope we have more of the latter than the first!

Here’s also hoping you are keeping warm, safe, and healthy and counting down the days until spring arrives, the flowers are blooming and the windows are open!!!

At Michigan Society for Healthcare Planning & Marketing (MSHPM) we are preparing for a fabulous and busy spring, summer and fall and we are so excited about it all! But we need YOU to help make all these terrific events and opportunities happen by joining one (or more) of our committees.

Committees

Committee membership is not time-consuming, yet is so impactful! We are seeking individuals to become members of one or more of our committees. Committees seeking membership are:

  • Communications/Membership: This committee works on all external messaging, including but not limited to webpage and social media, and developing strategies for membership growth & retention
  • Programs: This committee drives the development and execution of educational programming including the Annual State Conference, as well as working with SHSMD to bring and promote additional educational experiences to members.
  • Student Activities: This committee leads the development of programs and activities for students, including mentorship, scholarships facilitation and attendance at the Annual State Conference and other meetings/events.

 
If you are interested in learning more about what is involved and how to get involved, please contact our Chapter Administrator Michelle at mshpm2@gmail.com or myself.

Regional Partnerships

Members of the MSPHM Board of Directors have been meeting with other regional leaders in chapters like MSHPM. Representatives from chapters in Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota have been meeting and sharing with us and as a result we are thrilled to share that we have all agreed to host several joint ventures in the coming months! We are excited to be able to learn with and from our counterparts across the Midwest. Stay tuned (very soon!) for the announcements of topics and times!!

State Conference

We are planning our State Conference to continue in 2022, and we are planning it to be in-person! Save the Date for Thursday October 20 at Lansing Community College. Look for more announcements and information as we get closer!

Website & Social Media

We are so excited and appreciative to all the behind-the scenes work our communications committee members have been doing on our website over the last few months. We will be relaunching the site in the coming weeks! In the meantime, you can visit our current site (http://www.mshpm.org). Also please be sure you’re following, liking and sharing the MSHPM pages on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/mshpm2) and LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/company/mshpm)

If you have any questions, great ideas, thoughts or ideas you want to share, need any assistance or just want to say “HI!”, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Here’s to hoping and planning on sunnier days ahead!
