2018 marked the 50th anniversary of IFHIMA!!  Activities highlighting this achievement began earlier in 2018 and will culminate at the 19th IFHIMA Congress in Dubai.  Look for a grand, golden celebration as already evidenced in the gold tones to the Congress logo.

Over the next 18 months IFHIMA Global News and a new, special section on the IFHIMA website will carry messages from Past Presidents, National Directors, and key global HIM professionals.  This issue includes messages from three Past Presidents.  I hope you enjoy their message and reminiscing as much as I have.

Happy 50th, IFHIMA!!
