Tricia Mullins, FACMPE
VMGMA President

As President of VMGMA, I would like to welcome you to the Virginia Medical Group Management Association (VMGMA). The VMGMA is a leadership organization devoted to the continuous individual growth of its professionals through education. VMGMA’s hope is you will find our organization to be supportive and informative to you in your path of professional development and that we will provide opportunities for you to connect with others in our profession and to keep abreast of the issues that impact healthcare today and in the future. Never before has it been so critical that we as individual group, academic and hospital owned practices maintain confidence and foster intellectual health so we can be respected and recognized as leaders in this challenging and uncertain health care industry.  
We hope to provide strategic vision and leadership to ensure that practice administrators in all settings are equipped with the knowledge, skills and tools they need to deliver care that makes a positive impact on practice and patient outcomes.  VMGMA hopes to achieve this commitment by providing its members with enriched educational programs, the distribution of information of shared interest, and providing leading analyst to guide us and help us understand the emerging technology and applications to efficiently and effectively manage medical care and improve patient satisfaction.  We must not only keep abreast of new trends, but must be willing and able to lead the way toward the future. Our vision and our goals must be both immediate and long term.  We will continue to capitalize on our most valuable tool of mentorship and networking with other VMGMA colleagues. Every single member has the potential to enrich us as an individual and as a group through their valuable knowledge and experiences.
It is my hope that each and every one of our members will find the tools and information needed to succeed through VMGMA. Together with you, the volunteers, we will continue to collaborate with the industry to develop and produce a wide array of high quality and effective tools to assure success in your educational journey, the education of the leadership team, interdisciplinary team and the community.   I am so pleased to be a member of VMGMA, an organization that remains committed to encouraging practice administrators not just to do their work competently but also to be a well-informed voice for the people we serve and the profession.  We welcome your thoughts, suggestions and input on how to strengthen the organization.  Please feel free to email me. 
On behalf of the Board, thank you for making VMGMA the special organization that it is and thank you for all that you do as a leader working to improve health.  I look forward to getting to know all of you better in the coming months. I thank you for the privilege of serving as your president in the coming year.
