HPMSNJ is the organization that was recommended for me to join when I began my career in NJ healthcare. My company knew what I yet did not, what a professional organization like the Healthcare Planning and Marketing Society of NJ could do for my growth, education and networking.
It has now been over 20 years since I first joined the society, and it has been a pleasure to grow alongside other planning, marketing and PR members. HPMSNJ provides us with a network to reach out to peers with questions and a unique opportunity to make friends in our fields outside of our own organizations by working towards common goals and programs.
For over 30 years our association has advanced our profession by providing policy forums, information sharing, work with students/early careerists, and recognizing the best campaigns in health care planning, advertising, marketing and public relations through our PeRCy Awards. We will continue that legacy and look to grow with more programs and welcome our members, volunteers and sponsors.
Last year our summer panelist program and annual meeting brought us opportunities to cautiously assemble in person again. We hope to be able to do the same shortly in 2022.
This year we have a lot of new talent and volunteers supporting the organizations. In all of my years of involvement, I have never received so many "how can I get involved and help?" e-mails! It's amazing to see. If you'd like to get involved, please reach out to me at email@example.com.
Finally, we remind you that we are a state chapter of the Society of Healthcare Strategy and Market Development (SHSMD). Through this partnership, our members can access a variety of SHSMD programs and unique benefits even if they are not SHSMD members. These benefits include discounts to SHSMD University online courses and free webinars offered on a monthly basis through their educational platform.
We are very excited about the year ahead. If you are already a member or sponsor, we thank you for your support. If not, we hope you consider joining us at an upcoming event or meeting. We would love to have you.
2022 President, Healthcare Planning and Marketing Society of New Jersey
