2023 President’s Message

Dear FAHQ Members and Colleagues,

I am honored to be your incoming President, and I want to acknowledge the leadership of Susan Hendrickson and last year’s Board.  We had a successful year under their leadership, and I cannot thank them enough for their dedication and support.  I am also excited to welcome the new and returning Board members and look forward to working with them this year.

Past President: Susan Hendrickson
President-Elect: Vivia Subaran
Treasurer: Kimberly Corley
Secretary: Nisha Patel
Director: Jill Dykstra-Nykanen
Director: Timothy Gibbard
Director: Kimberly Mulquin-Shumway
Director: Orpha Gerundo
Director: Julie Cooke
Director: Brittney Costello
Director: Sandy Weiss
Director: Tina Williams

I would like to highlight a couple of programs we are continuing to provider to our members this year.  I hope that you are able to participate in these programs.

  • Free quarterly webinars through our collaboration with the Healthcare Quality Collective. Our Professional Development Team is actively working to recruit speakers for webinars this year. If you would like to present a webinar or know anyone who may be interested, please email professionaldevelopment@fahq.org.
  • Annual 2023 Conference. I invite you to attend our annual conference on April 26-28 in Orlando as we have a great line up of speakers!  For more information regarding the conference, please visit our website at org and click on the Conference tab.

We could not provide the above programs without the time and efforts of our Board and team volunteers.  Volunteering for one of our teams is a wonderful way you can support FAHQ.  We have needs for the following teams: Member Development, Professional Development, Conference Planning, Finance, Bylaws, Communications, and Nominations.  Information about the teams is on the FAHQ website.  If you would like to volunteer, please email teams@fahq.org.

I am excited for the upcoming year and look forward to working with the you and the Board as we continue to support our members and the healthcare quality profession.  Please let me know if you have any suggestions or ideas on how FAHQ can better serve you.
