It is hard to believe that we are already half way through 2021! In January this year, we were still in the midst of the pandemic and counting down the days to spring. We have had great advancements, opportunities, and challenges that have presented themselves since January, and we are likely to continue to encounter these events throughout the remainder of the year. While summer is nearing its pinnacle point, I look back on all we’ve done this year. We’ve had some amazing webinars and are looking forward to the upcoming virtual Payer Panel this coming November. 

With the ups, downs, and turn arounds we are proud to be able to serve you as MN AAHAM members. It is through you, your help, and your input, that we can continue to thrive and serve our members. As you read through this edition of the Gopher Tracks, I encourage you to consider possibly helping MN AAHAM in serving its members better. How do I do that, you ask? Please consider running for one of the upcoming board positions. Please consider volunteering your talents or insights with our upcoming Fall Conference. Please consider providing feedback in how we as an association can serve you better. 

Without you, our members and vendors, we could not thrive nor succeed. I personally want to thank each and every one of you for your support and continued involvement in MN AAHAM during this very challenging and unpredictable time. I look forward to the days when we can meet in-person again, play heads and tails while meeting our valuable vendors, and collaborate with one another regarding the changes to this industry. Keep up the fantastic work everyone! We’ve got this!
