The past year brought us great opportunities as well as challenges beyond our control. We were very fortunate to have guest speakers who offered timely and interesting topics. Each one of them was dynamic! During 2012, our Chapter received two important achievements. First, we received Innovation of Excellence for Best Use of Technology Award and two Proclamations from Nassau County Executive and Oyster Bay Councilman. These two achievements bring us closer to our CMSALI objectives of promoting the highest standard of professional practice in Case Management.
Although the year did not end smoothly with Hurricane Sandy and an unexpected snow storm affected and disrupted each one of us, it is the relief efforts that followed afterwards that I truly reflect on. These challenges brought us closer with a local chapter (Hudson Valley) who showed their love and support by holding their own Coat and Toy Drive in our honor. Together, we helped many victims of the storm.
As we face the year ahead, I am excited to continue our national mission- Lighting the Path, Leading the Way. In our continued support for education, we will once again offer a CCM Prep Course in September 2013. Our chapter is in the process of brainstorming to present you yet another dynamic year. Show us your passion and enthusiasm by joining one of our Committees (Welcome & Membership, Public Policy, and Website). Please contact me (email@example.com) or a Board of Directors member if you are interested in participating on one of these committees.
Thank you for engaging in the CMSA LI Chapter activities,
Coleen Cox-Ballah, President, 2013-2014
