Thank you to all who attended the 2019 Fall Conference of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Association for Hospital Resources and Materials Management (AHRMM). We have made some significant changes to our organization in order to best serve the needs of our members and encourage the maximum participation by our colleagues in healthcare supply chain and materials management. Rather than having a quarterly lunch meeting we will now have two (2) annual conferences in the Spring and in the Fall. The conferences are 2019 day-long events that feature nationally recognized speakers, continuing education credits, lunch, national AHRMM updates, a vendor fair, networking, games, and prizes! By changing to only two meetings a year and filling the day with valuable material we hope that all of our members near and far will join us in creating a fun and rewarding event.
SPRING CONFERENCE & VENDOR FAIR POSTPONED
Due to the current concerns related to COVID-19 (coronavirus) we are postponing the Rocky Mountain AHRMM Spring Conference and Vendor Fair. We will be monitoring the situation closely and we plan to re-schedule the event as soon as is prudent. Please be clear, this is a postponement and not a cancellation. Thank you for your understanding. We urge you all to follow health care recommendations and we look forward to seeing you soon.
8:30AM to 3:30PM
Hosted at University of Utah University Guest House Officer’s Club
110 S Fort Douglas Blvd SLC, UT 84113
2020 is going to be a great year for the Rocky Mountain AHRMM and you’re not going to want to miss it! We kick off the year with our Spring Conference and Vendor Fair on April 9th. This jam-packed conference will not only feature our annual Vendor Fair but will also include a brand new University Outreach program connecting the RM-AHRMM to BYU, Weber State, the University of Utah and Utah State University. The RM-AHRMM is partnering with the Young Professionals Advisory Council (YPAC) from the National AHRMM to create a University Outreach pilot program that we hope will serve as a template for the chapters across the country.
If you’ve missed RM-AHRMM meetings in the past you won’t want to miss out anymore. Join us for a great event, network with friends and colleagues, get CMRP CE credits, have some fun and see how AHRMM can help you grow your career!
