CM + ACM = Success!

What a great ACM AND SW MONTH CELEBRATION!!  Thank you to those who were able to attend! 

We welcomed 4 new ACM's who obtained their certification this past year.  Great job everyone!
We also recognized all of our ACM's attending the event!  A lot of people are taking their professional development very seriously and it shows! 

We exceeded our goal of ACM Certified Member Growth by 32% this year!!  
ACM certification is a mark of distinction that benchmarks your knowledge and application of hospital and healthcare system case management in a respected and recognized way to you, your employer and the patients/clients you serve."

We recognized and celebrated Social Work Month with 12 Social Workers! 
You make a difference every day!!

The snowstorm delayed our first event scheduled for March 21st but we appreciate Terry Mannix, Board Member-at-Large, working so hard on a new date at Carroll Hospital Center for our event!
