Conference Excitement Builds and NAB Committee Helps AAPC Members
Regional Conferences Are the Latest Buzz
Summer is ending, kids are heading back to school, and AAPC just wrapped up a Regional Conference in New York City. If you’re attending the Seattle regional conference held on October 14-16, you’ll be able to take advantage of the education and networking opportunities that AAPC conferences offer.
In addition to the top notch education that’s presented by industry-leading subject matter experts, don’t forget the value of the networking opportunities that conferences provide. Over the years, members have reported making contacts who have helped them to grow professionally over the course of their career. This is also an opportunity to meet the members of your National Advisory Board (NAB) and share your thoughts (positive and negative) about how AAPC is serving your needs. We rely on this information as we advise AAPC on current and future programs.
NAB Career Advancement Committee Launches the Mentorship Program
The NAB Career Advancement committee just announced the launch of the AAPC Mentorship Program. While complete information is available on the AAPC Website on the Mentorship Program page, I encourage members to take advantage of this program. If you have expertise in medical coding, consider sharing that knowledge with a mentee to ensure the development of our future industry leaders. Or if are looking to kick off your professional development path into high gear, register as a mentee and start your search for a compatible mentor. Just remember that a mentor’s job is not to answer your questions. Instead, it’s to guide you in learning how to find the answers yourself. Having been both a mentor and mentee, I can attest that in either role, both parties benefit professionally.
Share Your Ideas to Ensure Future Success
Each NAB Committee focuses on ensuring that as an organization we provide what members need to advance professionally. If you have any thoughts on what we might do more of, what we might do better or differently, please share those thoughts and ideas with your NAB regional representatives. Together, we can ensure that AAPC and its members are the universally recognized leaders in the business of healthcare.
