Updated IaHIMA Districts

In order to more closely align with the Iowa Hospital Association’s re-districting, IaHIMA has changed our districts. We will continue to promote professional activity within our districts through the interaction of the District Liaisons. The liaison(s) for each district are included in this message and can also be found on the IaHIMA website. We hope each district will continue to have meetings at least once each year to assist our members reach their goals for continuing education and learning about current trends and updates in the HIM field. If you are willing to host a meeting, speak at a meeting, or have topics you wish to see addressed, please contact your District Liaison. IaHIMA would like to send out a sincerest thank you to all members who volunteer at the district level.
