A NOTE FROM THE PRESIDENT
JUNE 2020

In March, all of our lives, personally and professionally changed dramatically and we had to transition into what we now know as a ‘new normal’. Whether you were deemed an essential worker or one whose efforts were still relied on working from home, as health care professionals, we all were impacted.

As we strive to ensure we develop educational sessions that will benefit our members, we ask that you bear with us – the platform we were use to (dinner conferences) was not an option and it required our board to become creative in implementing other opportunities while the stay at home order was in place. As we navigate through this global pandemic, the CMSA Detroit Chapter Board will continue to work diligently to enhance the way we bring information and resources to you. Operating virtually has been an interesting challenge, however we continue to function collectively to ensure we are attentive to your needs as a member of CMSA Detroit.

I would like to update you on some of the educational components we are working on for our members: we are in the process of developing virtual webinars - yes this is a first for us! In addition, we are still working on future conferences as we embrace a new approach to how we operate. However, we are proceeding with caution as the uncertainty of a possible next phase puts us somewhat at a disadvantage. In the meantime, please peruse our website to explore other educational resources available exclusively to our members.

We value you as a member and appreciate your patience. As we continue to work through this pandemic, we want to encourage you to remain optimistic – we will get through this together.  On behalf of the CMSA Detroit Board and myself, we hope you and those that are centered around you, remain in good health.

Sincerely,

Vivian Greenway, RN, MSA, PhD, CCM

President, CMSA Detroit
