CHIMA's 2014 Conference, Aspire and Lead, certainly inspired and motivated all those who attended this two day conference in Toronto, Ontario in October 2014. On behalf of the membership, CHIMA's Board of Directors continue to work tirelessly to lead and aspire the HIM Professional to take charge and challenge themselves to be leaders in their profession. Keynote speakers and presenters from the conference also echoed that challenge and in this ever-changing world of Health Informatics, we could all learn to support and mentor each other to seize those opportunities. Kim Barg, who is the HRABC's 2014 CHIMA Conference contest winner, had provided a detailed synopsis of her experience from this conference.
