What is a HIMSS Chapter Committee?     

A HIMSS Chapter Committee is a standing committee of a local HIMSS Chapter that provides an emphasis on issues of interest and concern to our members and the local health IT Community. Participating in an existing local HIMSS chapter provides an opportunity to achieve a closer working relationship with other leading health IT professionals, clinicians, academia, vendors, and consultants on a local and national level.
