HIMSS14 - Nebraska HIMSS Shines
Nebraska HIMSS was active in three events at the National HIMSS14 conference. The first event was the Community Open House with number of chapters represented. Nebraska had a table with handouts of Nebraska made products including fun facts for the state. We were able to use our new banner to promote the chapter.

Nebraska sponsored the Upper Great Plains Luncheon with the North and South Dakota chapters. It was a well attended event with well over 70 in attendance. It was full of networking opportunities. There will be future opportunties to expand offerings with the Upper Great Plains group of chapters.

Nebraska is excited to have received the Small Chapter of the Year Award at the National Conference. We attended the awards banquet to receive the honor.
