Volunteer Opportunities

We are always looking for more volunteers! Participation of our members in volunteer roles is key to building a strong association that provides optimal educational, networking, resources and leadership opportunities for its members. MHIMA is a professional association consisting of subject matter experts from a variety of different roles in health care. We have the expertise to provide a wealth of information in all aspects of health information management subject areas.

Without you, MHIMA would not be the premier association of health information management professionals in Minnesota!

Get involved today. Volunteering with MHIMA is a wonderful way to build your leadership skills, increase your professional contacts, and to give back to your profession. Even better? You will be able to socialize with peers while sharing your skills and working towards a common goal. Most committees conduct their meetings via phone conference, WebEx and e-mail, while others may also conduct a face-to-face organizational meeting.

Whether you are a new MHIMA volunteer or a “seasoned” volunteer, let us know how you would like to participate by submitting the Volunteer Form below. If there is a specific committee/KFA you are interested in, be sure to include that in the comments.

Please contact our Executive Director if you have additional questions or need more information.

Thank you for helping MHIMA make a difference!
