Spring has sprung in Victoria! And that means a few more events on the horizon including the Chapter's renowned two-day workshop.

The breakfast session on March 11th focused on "Healthcare Funding:  What do we get and what should we expect? " This included a panel discussion with presenters from an academic, a government, a private sector and a community organization. The Victoria Chapter was honoured to host: Dr. Jason Sutherland, Associate Professor in the Centre for Health Services and Policy Research in the University of British Columbia's Faculty of Medicine; Kim Kerrone, Vice President of Corporate Services & Chief Financial Officer, Vancouver Island Health Authority; Ronan Segrave, Senior Manager, KPMG's National Healthcare & Life Sciences Practice and National Lead for Cost Optimization; and, Melanie Mahlman, Executive Director, Victoria Hospitals Foundation.

The two-day workshop will be held May 18th-19th and will focus on financial management in the age of "Innovative Disruption". New systems, new rules and economic struggles are forcing everyone to redefine the way work is done. While all of these changes bring significant benefits and efficiencies, people have to be able to navigate themselves through these changes. Speakers will be discussing the latest PSAB update, the implementation of PAYBC, the move towards electronic records storage requirements, among a number of other emerging and relevant topics.

We would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate our Victoria Chapter President, Jason Stevenson, for recently receiving the "Service to the Profession" Award presented by CPABC. Way to go Jason! The Chapter is proud to have you on Board!!
