A Welcome from the President of the Carolinas Society for Healthcare Strategy & Market Development


Dear Colleagues,

I would like to thank you for taking the time to learn more about our organization, the Carolinas Society for Healthcare Strategy & Market Development (CSHSMD), and the value its programs and members can bring to your career. Founded in 1983, CSHSMD is a professional society run for and by our members. Our mission is “to provide excellent strategy and market development education and networking opportunities for healthcare professionals.” Our organization is unique in that it is one of the few professional associations in the country dedicated solely to healthcare strategy and business development. Our vision is “to be recognized as a unique and indispensable strategy and market development education and networking resource for healthcare professionals.”

In 2013, our Board of Directors completed a strategic planning process that reshaped our Board and committee structure. We decided to re-focus our organizational goals and measures of success on the strong relationships we have developed over the years with members and sponsors. We improved the transparency of our Board, expanded the size and depth of our committees, and changed the way we interact with our sponsors. In 2020, we are continuing this work and are excited about the value-added offerings we will be providing to our members this year.  CSHSMD is built on the dedication of volunteers, and we are always looking for members, both old and new, who would like to become more involved — or get re-engaged! You can find our committee chairs listed on the Board of Directors page, and I urge you to contact any one of us if you are interested in learning more.

I have been involved with CSHSMD since 2014 and can personally attest to the value of the connections I have made with peers and colleagues through the society. Interacting with healthcare strategy leaders from across North and South Carolina has been invaluable and an incredible source of knowledge and insight. I know you will have the same experience.

There are many ways to spend your education dollars and many organizations to choose from, but I urge you to consider our Society, support our local efforts, network with others throughout the Carolinas, and help define the type of organization you want.

I hope that you will enjoy your participation in CSHSMD through committee work, speaking or attending our programs and events, or by becoming a corporate sponsor. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I thank you for your support.
