Greetings from the Eastern District NCPHA FAMI Section

The Finance, Administration, Management, Information Technology (FAMI) Section welcomes all new and returning members. We continue to challenge every member to solicit at least two people from your health department to join Eastern District and, better yet, the FAMI section. The purpose of the FAMI Section is to provide an opportunity for the exchange of ideas; to promote and foster professional skills and efficiency of the members; to provide a forum for the discussion and dis- semination of information.

The following members were installed on the FAMI Executive Committee at the Spring Annual Conference this past April in Atlantic Beach:
Chair – Andrea Freeman – MTW District Health Department
Vice-Chair – Wanda Steed – Warren County Health Department
Secretary – Tanisha Lyons – Warren County Health Department
Past Chair – Monica Short-Owens – Cumberland County Health Department

The Executive Committee enjoyed seeing everyone for the first time in over two years face to face, where the FAMI section collaborated with the Health Director Section on several programs. The Executive Committee is excited to plan the upcoming Spring Conference on April 25-28, 2023, at Nags Heads, and we hope to see you all there.

I welcome the opportunity for questions, comments, or ideas you may have to make the FAMI Sec- tion better. Please do not hesitate to contact me via email at [email protected] or any other executive team member.

I look forward to working with each of you,

– Andrea R Freeman, MPA – FAMI Section Chair
