Rick France, FPHA President 2016-2017

President's Corner
Greetings from the FPHA. I’m honored to be President for a great upcoming year.

A lot of excitement and energy was generated at the 2016 Annual Education Conference along with a host of ideas. I believe this will be the Year of Membership as we work to maintain, recruit, and bring back members to keep us going strong.

Currently, there has been renewed participation in the FPHA Interest groups with much activity buzzing around with the Health Equity and Student sections (click on the link at the top of the page above to see the groups). At the conference there was much discussion on putting more focus on small projects and much less on the traditional conference calls. For those who are interested, and I hope it is quite a few, there is plenty of opportunity for those wanting to take on leadership responsibilities (chair a group) or if you would like to just network with other members.

And speaking of networking among members, this year we will be working to arrange for local get-togethers as well as regional conferences. Networking is a big part of FPHA in addition to advocacy and the annual education conference. Informal networking is something we can all do at the local level.

We still will have one big challenge for the year. Sandy Magyar, Executive Director, and Marsha Zupan, AEC Registration Coordinator, will be leaving us in January after fourteen years and eleven years in these positions, respectively. These are some big shoes to fill. Our thanks and best wishes for all they have done cannot be expressed enough.

It’s going to be a sensational year. Come join us!
