HIMSS North America Nominating Committee Elections Now Open

Elections for the HIMSS North America (HNA) Nominating Committee open October 15, 2018 and will close on November 15, 2018. The HNA Nominating Committee has created a slate of six qualified candidates; the membership will elect three of those candidates to the HNA Nominating Committee. Each HIMSS member may cast one vote for up to three different candidates for the HNA Nominating Committee. Bios for each of the six HNA Nominating Committee candidates are below.

Those elected to the HNA Nominating Committee will serve a two-year term from January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2020. The HNA Nominating Committee is responsible for creating both the HNA Nominating Committee slate of candidates and the HNA Board of Directors' slate of candidates. This includes soliciting, interviewing and evaluating eligible candidates – a crucial component to driving the mission of HIMSS.

This year, HIMSS members will also be asked to vote on proposed changes to the HIMSS Bylaws and the HNA Operating Agreement. Documentation outlining the changes will be available for your review on the election website.
