Special Need for Volunteers:

Sponsorship and Advocacy Committee's are in need of some volunteers!


Message from Advocacy Chair:

Message from Christopher Kunney - GA HIMSS aims to coordinate and advance healthcare IT and management systems through advocacy and public policy initiatives here in the state of Georgia.  We want to invite you to to join this committee and help reach its goals.  HIMSS mobilizes its members around the country and seeks to perform multiple levels of outreach activities to members of Congress and their staff through a variety of initiatives, providing accurate information about health information and technology to help them make effective public policy decisions.




Message from Sponsorship Chair:

Hello, my name is Brandon Haynie and I am the Sponsorship Chair for Georgia HIMSS and I would like to ask for your support on this committee so that we can accomplish the fundraising goals that will provide scholarships for students, advanced training and educational events for hospital IT staff. Each committee member will have a small group of existing and target sponsors that they will be responsible for contacting and talking about the current sponsorship opportunities with. The target goal of this position would be 1-2 hours per month with the possibility of a little more around the Spring Gala. As a committee member, each person will get the opportunity to share their vision and input into this committee and give back to their community through their service to support the Georgia Chapter of HIMSS. It’s also a great path to get noticed for a position on the Board of Directors.
