Vendor Sponsorship and Exhibitor Opportunities
FHIMA is an organization that supports and promotes health information management professionals and students by advancing best practices through education, technology, professional development, leadership, advocacy, and communication. Our theme this year is Step into NEW HIM Dimensions and our focus is to create opportunities to support and guide our membership through the many dimensions/changes that are occurring in our industry- truly supporting the ability to Step into NEW HIM Dimensions.
This year we have a number of events planned to prepare our members to Step into NEW HIM Dimensions. Some of them are:
- 10 Webinars on various topics for professionals
- 3 Free Webinars geared towards students and new professionals
- Mentorship programs
- Bachelors and Graduate Scholarships
- High School, College and University visits
- HIM New Professional and Student Convention
- Coding and CDI Institute
- Annual 2018 Convention
- Much More!
As the association prepares our members to Step into NEW HIM Dimensions, we want to ensure that we are also preparing college students for their careers in Health Information Management. FHIMA is currently planning our 1st Annual HIM New Professional and Student Convention for 2018! This event includes education sessions for current college students, recent graduates and new professionals to provide them with the tools and resources that they need to be successful in the HIM environment. For many of these students this will be their first experience in a convention setting exposed to renowned speakers, mentors, educational resources and potential employers. In addition to this event we are also planning a one day Coding and CDI Institute that is focused on providing training and education to Coding and CDI professionals.
The success of our organization and outreach is dependent upon the financial and product support of corporations and private sponsors. We have been fortunate in past years to have the support from organizations like yours and we are hopeful that this year will be no exception. Please consider becoming one of our 2018 Corporate Sponsors. As a sponsor, you will receive invaluable positive media attention from your association with FHIMA, a 501(c) (3) non-profit as well as recognition at our events and on our FHIMA website and social media accounts. You are an ideal partner for us; our members including our students and new professionals.
Please see the FHIMA 2018 Exhibitor Agreement which provides details on exhibiting at our 2018 Convention, scheduled for July 29 – August 1, 2018 and the 2018 Exhibitor Hall Map. We have listened to our partners and we have made several changes to our Corporate Sponsorship Tiers and benefits. We have also made adjustments to the time that we are providing in the exhibit hall to network with attendees. In addition to this document you will also find the FHIMA Sponsorship Agreement which provides details on all sponsorship opportunities for 2018. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor of FHIMA for any of these events or an exhibitor at our upcoming 2018 February and July events, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you in advance for taking the time to review our sponsorship package. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions. We look forward to working with you.
