As the 2018-2019 President for Northeast Ohio Chapter, I want to welcome you to a new year!

I am excited and honored by the opportunity to be involved in the continued success of our chapter to date. I look forward to continuing to build on the great foundation of our chapter and increase the momentum of our team to keep moving forward toward successes.

At our recent LTC meeting, our new theme “Imagine Tomorrow” was introduced by our new HFMA National Chair, Kevin Brennan. I can only imagine what our new chapter team is going to produce for us this year with programs featuring “Hot Topics” in healthcare, Winter Gala, Our Fall program; “Exploring the Pathways of Healthcare” , Women in Leadership Retreat, Finance/Accounting program, and our GHALI 2.0. This being stated, it is my pleasure to introduce the rest of our Chapter’s 2018-2019 leadership team:


Christopher (Chris) Maeder, President-Elect

Brianna Ashley, Vice-President

Diane Lilko, Treasurer

Lori Koenig, Secretary

Board of Directors:

Ted Reddy, Chairman

Nadia Vincenti, Director

Karen Mihalik, Director

Ellen Ourednik, Director

Tracy Cahoon, Director

Anna Lang, Director

Don Urbancsik, Director

Alison Vincenti, Chapter Coordinator


These are the individuals that continue to provide our members with quality educational opportunities. I offer my sincere gratitude for their continued support and dedication they give to our chapter. I cannot wait to work with each of you talented and wonderful members in our chapter.

HFMA can be very rewarding, and becoming involved as a volunteer on a committee for one of our many upcoming programs, is a great way to connect with our chapter, meet new friends, meet professionals in your career set that can influence your future, and strengthen our team. If you are interested in joining one of our committees please go to our website and contact one of our leadership team members.

The success of our Northeast Ohio Chapter depends on the support of our wonderful business partners. We appreciate the major role you play in our chapter growth by sponsoring our chapter. Through your support we are able to provide quality educational events and networking opportunities.

In closing it is my hope to continue the legacy that has been set by our past leadership teams. Our chapter foundation is strong and as the President, I hope to continue to strengthen our educational offerings, chapter website, membership growth, and program attendance.

Thank you for this incredible opportunity and please feel free to contact me with any thoughts or concerns you may have in the upcoming year.
