President's Message

Kristen Kimbrel, CMP, Senior Meeting Planner, American Academy of Family Physicians

Wow, I can't believe it's June already. Our chapter has had a busy few months and the remaining 2015 is going to be action packed. 

We had two great lunch speakers in April and May. The April event was our first joint meeting with the local KCSAE chapter and by joining forces we were able to bring a top-notch speaker for our members. We hope to continue this relationship in future years. 

Our board also met in May and will meet again in July. Your board and committee members are continuing to do exceptional work on behalf of the chapter. During the July board meeting and retreat, we plan to discuss succession planning for 2016 and beyond. This is an exciting time and if you have an interest in getting involved with the chapter, please reach out to me or someone on the board. 

In the upcoming months we have some great programming and networking opportunities. In July, we have our annual joint PCMA/KCMPI Best in Class Speaker. Plus, the committee is working on the final details of the August event, and we will also have a fun event in September located in St. Louis.

October 1st is the 2nd Annual Golf Tournament and November is the annual State of the Industry meeting.

We just returned from the PCMA Education Conference in Fort Lauderdale. We had great leaders from our Chapter that attended and they brought back lots of great ideas.

I look forward to seeing you all at our future events!
