The proposed 2020 MHIMA bylaw changes have been unanimously approved. To achieve a quorum, 66 members needed to participate through this year’s Virtual Annual Meeting and vote on the proposed changes by Friday, May 29th.  I am so excited to report we had 108 member participate and vote. We have an amazing group of individuals within MHIMA. Below is a graphical representation of the vote.

Part of the approved bylaw changes is to change our acronym from MHIMA to MNHIMA. The first step to accomplish this was to approve the change. Now that we have accomplished that goal, the next step is for our Executive Director to submit the change request to the State of Minnesota. Once the State of Minnesota has approved the change, we will then work with AHIMA to obtain a new logo with the updated acronym.

Thank you from the entire MHIMA Board of Directors for your dedication to our association.
