Past President's Message by Chris Wilson

I am torn about my time as Kansas Chapter of HIMSS president coming to an end after two years. I so enjoyed serving our organization in the leadership role and will miss it. We grew our membership double digits each year, continued to expand the quality and content of our educational and conference offerings, and expanded the communication of the benefits of being a member.
However, the good of my transition far outweighs the bad. We could not ask for a better president than Michelle McGuire. Michelle has been helping with many of the president's responsibilities for some time and is primed to take the organization to the next level. We also have several current and future leaders on our Board. Simply going down the list of Board members gives me
a tremendous amount of confidence that our Chapter is in safe hands.
It is the support of these individuals that made my job easy. I thank everyone for their tremendous time and energy over the last two years and am excited to see where we head from here.
Onward and Upward!
Chris Wilson
