CMSA Today - Issue 1, 2018 - 10

Included with CMSA membership, this online
resource offers approximately 160 online sessions with continuing education credits. CMSA
members: Take full advantage of this important
member benefit, which is included free of charge.
One of the biggest changes at CMSA, announced
in summer of 2017, is a big one: free membership!
Attending our annual conference and expo is a big
commitment in both time and resources, and we
want to recognize that dedication. For our June
2018 annual conference in Chicago, all full conference registrants receive a complimentary one-year
CMSA membership.
The free membership offer is available for both
current members and nonmembers; for nonmembers, membership begins upon registering for the
conference, while for current members the complimentary year begins upon expiration of the
member's current membership. The value of our
community in the areas of continuing education,
camaraderie and community are important yearround, not only during conference week!
At our June 2018 conference in Chicago, we offer
eight blocks of concurrent sessions, an expo with
250+ exhibitors and sponsors, fabulous keynote presenters such
as The Doctors host Dr. Travis Stork, countless networking opportunities and a lot of fun. I say this every year, but you really do not
want to miss what we have in store for 2018.

In the spirit of industry and
community collaboration,
another change made to membership in 2017 is our partnership with The Commission for
Case Management Certification
(CCMC) to work collaboratively
to promote case manager professional development. This
project is particularly special,
as I worked on it with our dear
friend, Patrice Sminkey.
She passed away before
she was able to see the
partnership come to fruition; however, I am proud
that our two organizations
have come together to see it
through and do what's best
for case management as a
whole. With this partnership,
CMSA members now receive
a 20 percent discount when
applying for the CCM certification and the same 20 percent
discount upon renewal. Those who hold the CCM certification
receive a 20 percent discount on CMSA membership.
In the area of public policy, our focus is on the new Case
Management Model Act, which recognizes the critical role professional case managers assume in managing chronically ill and
complex populations and helping patients in transitions of care,
among many other services. Reflecting the scope of services in
CMSA's Standards of Practice for Case Management, revised 2016,
the Model Act seeks to truly demonstrate and recognize the value
of professional, licensed case managers. Read more about the Act
in Chriss Wheeler's article in this issue.
We have two upcoming events later this year during which the
Model Act and other important recognitions of case managers
will take place. First is our Hill Day event in September 2018 in
Washington D.C., where CMSA members have the important
opportunity to advocate for themselves, all case managers and
the healthcare industry as a whole. Secondly, in October 2018
our annual celebration of case management commences during
National Case Management Week.
We are here to serve all case managers - you - in the development and longevity of a long and fulfilling career. Please explore
our redesigned website at www.cmsa.org and see how we can
serve you. Keep your passion for case management alive!
Happy New Year, and truly, thank you for all you contribute to
our organization!
Sincerely,

Kathleen Fraser
