Case managers engage, educate, and empower – they exemplify excellence in action! National Case Management Week 2012 is your chance to celebrate case managers and the case management industry. It’s YOUR week — October 14 – 20, 2012 — and an exciting time of recognition and celebration! This year’s Case Management Week theme was submitted by Terry Wooding, BSN, RN, CCM, a member of the CMSA North Carolina Piedmont Triad Chapter. Terry’s submission was selected as the winning entry in the 2012 CM Week Slogan Contest. The medallion and banner design signiﬁes that case managers deserve to be recognized as winners throughout the continuum of care. The gold and purple, colors associated with royalty, bring attention to the importance of case managers as leaders in the health care industry. And every day, case managers engage the health care team, educate the caregiver, and empower the patient – work that is truly “Excellence in Action!”
A WINNING THEME FOR OUR CASE MANAGEMENT HEALTH CARE HEROES

The local CMSA chapters are the foundation to our association. Members who get involved in their local chapters have the opportunity to build a close network of like-minded professionals in the industry; and, local chapter events and activities allow chapter members to gain knowledge of the changes and opportunities that are right in their own backyard! Getting involved on a local level not only enriches your leadership skills, but it also primes individuals to become national leaders of the association. Chapters help to support the many initiatives that CMSA National continuously works to achieve, including public policy, multi-state licensure, as well as meeting the basic needs of improving educational and networking opportunities for our members. Through the local involvement of our 11,000 members, CMSA can continue to meet its mission to “provide professional collaboration across the health care continuum to advocate for patients’ wellbeing and improved health outcomes.”
