Membership Updates

Dear WVHIMA CA members,

I hope this communication finds everyone happy, healthy and thriving! I can’t believe we are in Q4 2023, and quickly approaching the holiday season. There will be additional communications coming to you over the next several weeks, but I want to take this opportunity to provide a quick preamble of recent events and events to come.

We just attended the 2023 AHIMA Annual Convention in Baltimore, MD. Megan McDougal, Ashley Simmons and I represented the WVHIMA CA in the 2023 AHIMA House of Delegates (HOD) on Sunday 10/8/2023.  If you have any questions regarding the HOD proceedings, please visit our website or via email at

I want to give a shout-out to The Health Informatics and Information Management (HIIM) bachelor degree program at the WVU School of Medicine.  Megan McDougal, Ashley Simmons and Danielle Sollenberger were present on the vendor floor to promote and answer questions about the program during the convention.  If you attended the convention or are using the eventScribe app, they were booth 1032.  Please take the opportunity to access the booth 1032 information to learn more about the program.

The WVHIMA CA Board of Directors is scheduled to have a full board meeting on Wednesday 10/25/2023.  We have many items on the agenda, but two I want to make you aware of now, and more details will follow.

  1. We are looking into a one-day virtual educational event between now and 12/31/2023 for AHIMA-approved CEU’s.  Please standby for more information.  This is tentative at this time, but I want you to know what the board is working on in terms of CEU opportunities.
  2. We are also looking into the Bavarian Inn Resort, and Brewing Company in Shepherdstown, WV for the 2024 WVHIMA Annual Convention.  At this time, the tentative month will be April 2024, and again more details will follow.

Thank you for your ongoing membership and support!

Best Regards,
Nelson R. Liston II, RHIT
President WVHIMA CA
