End of Year Awards Banquet

Join us for a SW Ohio HFMA Education day and year-end holiday celebration on December 13th at the RhineGeist Reception Hall. Our Chapter will briefly recognize our 2019/20 volunteer leaders and leave plenty of time for networking in the afternoon. This event is one of the better events to network with our provider and partnered colleagues.
There will be three outstanding leadership speakers, a luncheon and a networking gathering for just $25. This will be a great way to kick-off the holiday season with our HFMA friends.

Former Business Courier publisher Doug Bolton leads Cincinnati Cares, standing up the organization as the volunteer-centric entity our region needs and expanding the Cincinnati Cares platform to serve all individuals, businesses and nonprofits. After many years of service and business leadership in the Cincinnati and Dayton regions, it’s appropriate that Doug is putting his energy on a solution to our region’s volunteer crisis. He brings to Cincinnati Cares experience as a trained journalist in print, digital and all forms of broadcast media, with deep knowledge of and involvement in most, if not all economic ecosystems in our 3-state region. He has strong capabilities as a chief spokesman through speaking and audience engagement and has overseen processes and P&Ls, human resource management, strategic planning, marketing execution and sales and sales management. Over the past 20 years, as CEO of his respective organizations, he has taken three good organizations and made them great. Two were in the publishing industry — including 10 years as publisher of the Business Courier — the other in commercial real estate services. In addition, he has served as board chair and in other leadership roles in some of our region’s largest nonprofit organizations.
