A Message from PASHRM President, Dominic Adams
Greetings PASHRM members! I hope during this time that everyone is doing their very best to remain safe during the pandemic. COVID-19 has affected all of us in some way since its emergence to the Philadelphia region in early March. Since then, all of us having been doing our very best to help mitigate risks and challenges associated with delivering care. As you are aware, due to COVID-19 we had to cancel our Spring event that was scheduled during the month of March. The executive board recently met to discuss how we would adjust our programming to meet the needs of our members. While there is uncertainty in how long we will have stay at home orders, we understand that the use of technology allows us to deliver meaningful programs to our members through virtual applications. Look for invitations to join future webinars and hopefully we will be able to offer our in person holiday program at the end of the year. Last year’s program was very successful. For individuals impacted by COVID-19 financially, we will offer programming to you regardless of your membership standing in 2020. Our annual scholarship to attend the ASHRM conference will be offered as long as ASHRM host its 2020 conference.
I believe it is imperative for all of us to continue to network and learn from each other during this challenging time. Let us continue to build relationships with colleagues across the region and I look forward to successfully leading this organization in 2020.
Dominic Adams, MHA, CPHRM
