CMSA'S Pulse eNewsletter
Special Announcement

The week of October 11-17 was filled with celebrations, gratitude, relevant education, and a sense of togetherness. With the theme of “Case Managers Can _____,” the community blasted social media with photos, their completed theme statements, and activities to honor one another. The CMSA Chapters received official proclamations from their respective Governors, held virtual networking and educational events, and brought members together to honor the profession and each other. CMSA ran a Social Media Madness contest for the Chapters, with CMSA Chicago coming in first place! A Case Managers and Cocktails event allowed case managers to get together, test their knowledge of CMSA history, win prizes, and enjoy gifts from the event sponsor Medway Air Ambulance. Members showed their CM Week spirit with CM Week-branded sweatshirts, masks, tote bags and more. Additionally, the CMSA Foundation launched the Honor a Case Manager fundraiser to recognize case managers through notecards and video with a nominal donation. These donations are the start of a fund to support members with membership or conference registration needs in the future. Case Managers Can…do many amazing things and this week proved just that!
