President's Message - September 2019
Dear VAHRMM members,
Now that the summer is coming to an end in Virginia, and the temperatures are cooling down, it is a gentle cue that fall is around the corner. It is also a reminder that the VAHRMM Fall 2019 conference is quickly approaching. Our 36th annual conference will once again be held at the Westin Virginia Beach Town Center Oct 9-11th. The board members have been working feverously putting together the final details to be sure that this year’s conference will be exceptional as always.
As you will see in this month’s newsletter, VAHRMM’s Education committee has put together an agenda of speakers that all healthcare supply chain and affiliates will find informational, thought provoking, challenging and exciting. The Activities committee has arranged an itinerary that will not only be an outstanding resource for networking with your peers, vendors, and other healthcare professionals, but will also be entertaining. On a personal note, I want to thank our membership and our vendor partners for all of your support and dedication to keeping VAHRMM a successful resource for the professional development of Supply Chain professionals. Because of your support we are able to once again offer our first time hospital attendees to attend free.
In closing, I look forward to seeing you at this year’s golf outing (benefiting local foodbank) and conference. We have a few exciting surprises planned and I hope you will enjoy the speakers, camaraderie, and venue. If you have any questions or concerns registering for the conference, please feel free to contact me or any board member.
Mark your calendars for VAHRMM20 October 7th, 8th, and 9th
at the Marriott Norfolk Waterside hotel.
