Member Benefits

Audio Conferences / Webinars

GKCMMA periodically sponsors MGMA audio conferences or webinars on relevant health care issues and medical management topics that the committee feels would be of benefit to the membership. These hour-and-a-half presentations currently are provided free-of-charge to GKCMMA members and are held at various locations in the Kansas City metropolitan area.

Education Conference

GKCMMA’s annual one-day education conference provides an opportunity for interaction between speakers and members. The conference is our attempt to bring national known speakers to our membership at a nominal fee. This year’s conference was held on March 24, 2010 at the Ritz Charles Conference Center in Overland Park from 7:15 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Our theme this year was "Creating Super Heroes: The Power of Knowledge" with a focus on Human Resources, Financial and Operational Management, including strategic planning. The support of more than 84 exhibitor booths and 20 sponsors was much appreciated and keeps our association a viable force in the Kansas Area.

Networking

Sponsors willing to provide networking events at no cost to members work closely with the Networking Subcommittee to create networking evetns outside the normal work hours. This subcommittee of the Program Committee plans informal after-work events periodically, located in various areas of the Kansas City metropolitan area. These opportunities are not paid events: food and drink are the members’ responsibility unless it is underwritten or hosted by a practice or business partner. Watch for upcoming events in our monthly newsletter.

Professional Development

The Forum Representative and ACMPE Committee encourages GKCMMA members to continue their professional development by providing study groups for individuals preparing for the ACMPE exams and papers, as well as being a resource for continuing education materials at many levels.
