HFMA Northern California continues to receive recognition for the outstanding work of its volunteers and leadership.

The following is a list of the Awards the HFMA Northern California Chapter has awarded in recent years.


 
The Presidential Award represents the Chapter’s highest honor and is awarded only when appropriate (and typically not more than annually). The Award is given to an individual who resides or works in the Chapter’s geographical area whose outstanding achievement has benefited the Chapter and healthcare financial management . In most cases, the achievement meriting the Award is sustained over a number of years, although extraordinary short-term achievement may be considered. Chapter membership is not a prerequisite. Past recipients of the Presidential Award are ineligible.
