Chapter Awards

Each year the New England HIMSS chapter host an annual event to celebrate a year of successful events and programs but also to recognize those that have dedicated time and effort to the New England Chapter of HIMSS.

We greatly appreciate the time and dedication of all of our board members, sponsors, and speakers for their efforts to share their knowledge with our membership. These awards are for a few outstanding individuals for whom we would like to take a moment for a special thank you.
