Message from the President

The author Tom Peters once wrote, “If you’re not confused then you haven’t been paying attention.”  Nothing could be more appropriate during this turbulent time of healthcare transformation.  And when the going gets tough, the tough need to get going (I’m not sure who coined that phrase).  The mission of NJMGMA is to help practice managers throughout New Jersey anticipate, understand, and respond to these regular and disruptive changes. 

This year marks the 16th year of NJMGMA and I’m thrilled to report that our membership has grown to 475 members, making this our most successful year ever.  There is true strength in these numbers as we all need to partner, network, share and learn from each other.  Practice managers play a key role in shaping the future of healthcare, and helping providers as well as patients navigate through the disorder and distractions.  NJMGMA serves our membership thru a broad spectrum of programs, resources, professional development, networking opportunities, and advocacy. You are the true leaders of the healthcare landscape and your success is the essence of our mission.  

If you’re currently a member, I thank you and ask you to share your input with our group, and if you’re not yet a member, please take advantage of this relatively inexpensive, yet invaluable resource.  Let’s get together and feel alright (Bob Marley, of course)! 

On behalf of the NJMGMA Board, welcome.

Alex Binder, President, MBA, FACMPE
