    The coders day is State specific the state I am from each year we have to approach the governors office to request this day be recognized. If it is approved we get a proclamation from the governor designating a certain day as Coders day.

    Cool
    Funny you should ask this now. I was looking at an old copy of the Coding Edge from Jan 2007 I believe last night. It had a map with State Coder's Day listings. I think 33 states have Coder's Day and it listed the dates. If I remember I will look today at Arizona and let you know. You could also check with the local chapters there, it is usually a chapter that gets the ball rolling. I am in DC and we actually petition the Mayor's office and he gives us a proclamation. District Medical Coder's Day is July 12th.

    I just happened to have the Jan 2007 Coding Edge at my desk. How's that for coincidence? Page 29 lists the State Coders Day. Arizona is July 14. I was looking for ours also (Indiana) and was told it was in November but was unsure of the day. It's November 9. Pretty cool huh? LOL
