Washington, DC, USA, June 2, 2021. MCI USA’s Association Solutions division is pleased to welcome the American Society for Health Care Human Resources Administration as a new full-service association management client. ASHHRA is the nation’s only membership organization dedicated to meeting the needs of human resources professionals in health care. Formerly a professional membership group of the American Hospital Association (AHA), ASHHRA has more than 2,000 members nationwide.
“The AHA recognizes the value of health care human resources programs and wants to see ASHHRA’s programs thrive,” said Michelle Hood, Executive VP and COO, AHA. “To that end, the AHA has entered into an agreement with MCI USA, a globally recognized leader in serving membership associations. MCI will lend its rich expertise in helping the new, standalone ASHHRA flourish as an independent, non-profit entity.”
“ASHHRA is looking to broaden its workforce agenda for a post-pandemic environment, making this the right time for ASHHRA to become a standalone 501(c)(6) organization with its own fiduciary board to govern it,” said Jeremy Sadlier, Executive Director, ASHHRA. “Our new partnership with MCI USA positions ASHHRA for a greater level of success, maximizing the many valuable aspects of our work.”
ASHHRA leads the way for its members to become more effective, valued and credible leaders in health care human resources. As the foremost resource for health care human resources, ASHHRA provides timely and critical support through research, learning and knowledge sharing, professional development, products and resources, and opportunities for networking and collaboration. ASHHRA offers the only certification distinguishing health care human resources professionals,the Certified in Healthcare Human Resources (CHHR).
“MCI USA is proud to welcome ASHHRA as a full-service management partner,” said Erin M. Fuller, FASAE, CAE, President, Association Solutions, MCI USA. “This is an exciting time in ASHHRA’s evolution, and we look forward to collaborating with the board and staff to expand ASHHRA’s impact and enhance its value to members and stakeholders.”
