Southeast Physician Recruiter Association (SEPRA) Update
By Lee Moran, SEPRA President and Physician Recruiter, Erlanger Health System, Chattanooga, TN
SEPRA has been very busy this year. We held our first nominations last November and we are officially a 501(c)6 organization with the IRS.
Our first year out of the gate has shown great success. SEPRA has more than 80 members from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Tennessee. We have already hosted three continuing education webinars for our members and have more scheduled. The most recent webinar was held October 10 with presenter Chris Carahan from the Carnahan Group, sponsored by Enterprise Medical. Hats off to Bonita Lancaster and our Education Committee for their diligence at scheduling meaningful topics and securing sponsors for our webinars!
SEPRA has an active LinkedIn group. We encourage all current and prospective members to join for the most updated information about SEPRA.
SEPRA’s Marketing/Website Committee is diligently working with PracticeLink on our website, which should go live soon. Visit us online at: www.sepra-aspr.com.
SEPRA had a strong presence at the ASPR conference in Tucson this year. We were pleased to host a table at the conference, allowing us the opportunity to meet many of our members face to face. A business meeting was also conducted in Tucson, where we exchanged ideas about the chapter’s future. Committee sign-ups were a great success at the business meeting, but we are still looking for more committee participation.
Last but not least, SEPRA will hold elections in November, when we will elect both a vice president and secretary. If you would like more information about these roles, please contact Lee Moran, firstname.lastname@example.org.
