We are very pleased to announce the results of the election for the Board of Directors of the new Mighty Rivers Regional AHDI for 2013:
Charlotte Hartwig, CMT, AHDI-F
Debra Krapfl, RHIT, AHDI-F
Sara Wayne, CMT
Debra Behnke, CMT
Your board will be hard at work with petitioning for recognition by AHDI, writing policies and procedures, starting the new website (this site will be active for several months and will post a link to the new website when it is available) and many more activities in the launch of this new region.
Our 2012 symposium was a rousing success. By request of the attendees, please find links to "Future Roles for our Workfoce by Martha Songer, RMT, AHDI NLB District 3 direct and "The Impact of Meaningful Use of Health Care" presentation by Tuyet Vance, MBA.

As you are all aware, we recently underwent an e-mail survey, along with AHDI members residing in N. Dakota, S. Dakota, Iowa and Illinois, to determine whether or not we would merge together and form one larger AHDI Regional Association. Well – the results are IN and I am pleased to announce that the decision has been made to MERGE!
WI/MN had 63 members vote – and of those 63 there were a total of 58 IN FAVOR, 3 votes NOT IN FAVOR, and 2 voters ABSTAINED.
The results from the other states were also overwhelmingly in favor of merging.
For 2012 – we will remain WI/MN Regional AHDI. We will be moving forward, however, as MIGHTY RIVERS REGIONAL AHDI.
I wholeheartedly believe that this merger is in the best interest of all members. Charlotte and I will be meeting with representatives from the other states soon and one of us will keep you posted as to the details of these meetings.
Thank you all for your time and efforts and helping to keep us moving forward! Please keep an eye on our WI/MN website for further details as we will post them there, as well as continue to
get them out via blast e-mail.
Have a very nice weekend everyone – and stay tuned for further information!
