Dear Members and Friends,

We hope that you had an enjoyable summer. We are pleased to welcome newly-elected Board members Dylan Braverman, Marcia Levinson, Joanne Melia, and Lynn Wilson. These new Board members coupled with the additions to our Emeritus Board will bring the combination of new ideas and from a broad cross-section of backgrounds representing the breadth of our membership to be guided by our Emeritus Board with its experience and knowledge of the rich history of AHRMNY.

We wish to give special congratulations to long time Board member Mike Midgely who was recently elected President-Elect of ASHRM. Additionally, we wish to congratulate AHRMNY Emeritus Board member Jose Guzman, Jr. on obtaining DFASHRM (Distinguished Fellow of the American Society for Healthcare Risk Management) status and AHRMNY and ASHRM Board member Dr. Victor Klein upon becoming editor of the ASHRM Journal of Healthcare Risk Management.

We are excited to embark on the 2015-1016 term starting with the webinar to be given by Shannon Grad, RN, MSN, NEA-BC, Director of Patient and Family Experience at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center and Alice Vautour, Esq., Vice President, Product Development and Legal Teams for MRM Group, LLC, discussing Risk Management and Patient Experience Initiatives and Strategies to Have a Positive Impact on Each. This will take place on September 17th. This will pick up where our successful full day event held June 5, 2015, covering topics ranging from cyber breach, robotics, the medical liability crisis, mitigating damages from the ACA, and handling the active shooter, left off.

We look forward to continuing and deepening our ties with neighboring chapters of ASHRM including SHCRM-NJ (the Society for Health Care Risk Management of New Jersey) and CSHRM (Connecticut Society for Healthcare Risk Management).

We will also be presenting our annual morning half-day live seminar in December. Please stay tuned for the details.

Additionally, our acclaimed peer reviewed journal, the Risk Management Quarterly will be published again this fall. Contributions of articles are greatly appreciated and should be forwarded to the Publications Committee chair people, Linda Foy and Ruth Nayko for consideration by the editorial board.

For those of you who are members and sponsors, we thank you for your support and involvement and for those of you who are visiting this site, thank you for your interest. We encourage you to review our mission statement, programs and journal on this site. If the AHRMNY mission is your mission, we encourage you to join us. Individual and group memberships are available and we do have rolling admission.

On behalf of the Board, thank you for your support. We are looking forward to a terrific 2015-2016!

Robert D. Martin, President
