MaHIMA Wants You!
Hear first-hand from those who made the leap, and are still glad they did.
“Over the years I served in several capacities on the MaHIMA board. I was a little nervous the first time I ran for office just because it was a new experience but I had the encouragement and support of friends and colleagues to help me out. I didn’t win the first or even the second time I ran (that can be discouraging) but my opponents were excellent candidates and MaHIMA was in good hands. When I did win it was even more rewarding. I choose to serve MaHIMA as a volunteer and elected officer for several reasons; Sheila Callahan (President 1979-1980) told me I ‘had to do it’ and many people who had served before said they got so much back from the experience in terms of friendships, mentoring and feeling good about the contribution you can make to give back to the profession. They were absolutely right. I enjoyed my year as President so much that I did it a second time 14 years later!”
Linda Hyde, President 1990-1991 and 2004-2005
