President’s Message

Dear NCMGMA Colleagues,

Jacob Rodman, 2015-16 NCMGMA President

It is hard to believe that we are nearing the end of summer and fall is almost here, and if your life has been like mine, this summer has flown by.

As I look back over the last several months and think of what NCMGMA has accomplished, I could not be more proud to be a part of this great organization. In June, we had a tremendous advocacy day’s event where Brad Wilson (BCBS), Wayne Goodwin (NCDOI) and others shared their thoughts and ideas on the current state of healthcare. Since then, we’ve been communicating with BCBS on a whole new level. NCMGMA has pulled up a seat at the table, and we have been making a difference. Thanks!

Looking towards the future, the joint conference committee has been hard at work planning a spectacular inaugural M3 Conference for us in September (September 15-18 at the Grandover Resort), as we partner with the NC Medical Society and all of our committees have been hard at work representing all of you every step of the way. I hope to see a majority of our membership at the Grandover Resort for this conference!  You can find complete information about the event here.

Healthcare has continued to be on shaky ground, and one thing is guaranteed from the elections this fall, healthcare will continue to be a hot national debate. The leadership team will be holding a retreat later this week to discuss our organization’s future and how best to position ourselves. Our main goal is to be an advocate for you, our members, while also providing top-notch education and allowing for networking opportunities for each of us. Our credo is to be “leaders for tomorrow’s healthcare.” This is a credo we do not take lightly and is at the center of every decision we make.

I thank all of you for your involvement in NCMGMA and can assure you that as always, the leadership is hard at working representing you, every single day. As we prepare for a new year in NCMGMA, I urge all of you to get involved in the state organization in addition to getting plugged into your local chapter. The connections and time spent will be well worth it.

Again, I hope to see you all at the M3 Conference in Greensboro in September. I can promise you that it will be an event unlike any other!

Respectfully,

Jacob A. Rodman
2015-2016 NCMGMA President
