Marketing Committee

Jim Wright Lead
The Marketing Committee needs participants as the marketing committee now has numerous sub-committees. The overall marketing plan outline is still in draft format. A strategic plan is being developed. Marketing Research through statistical information from surveys is vital to members. Survey is drafting a survey for HPMA. The goal is to keep the survey respondent fill out time to not more than 20 minutes. Jim also informed that HPMA has an RFP out for a new web site design and hosting. The goal is to have the new web site up and running by year end. A speakers Bureau will put together persons interested in doing presentations. Our advertising funding level is low so advertising will be at a minimal.
