NNESHRM: Serving Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont for over 25 years.


30th Annual New England Regional Healthcare Risk Management Conference


Thank you for your commitment to and interest in the 30th Annual New Regional Healthcare Risk Management Conference scheduled for early May in Mystic, CT.  Given the circumstances involving the Covid-19 virus, the planning committee has decided to postpone the conference. It was a difficult decision but everyone’s safety is important to us. We hope to see you all at the conference once we have a new date. Please watch the chapter websites for updates. For those already registered, sponsors and speakers, conference organizers will be in touch soon.

Welcome to the Northern New England Society for Healthcare Risk Management (NNESHRM) website

NNESHRM is an organization for healthcare risk managers, attorneys, insurance professionals, and medical-legal consultants who share a common purpose: to minimize the potential liability of healthcare providers in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.

President's Message

Welcome to NNESHRM. We are looking forward to another great year of celebrating our profession, sharing knowledge, and creating a strong network with each other! If you are a returning member, you are well aware of the value of membership, and the resource we are to our members. If you are a new member, or considering membership, I hope you will soon come to realize all the knowledge, collegial support and fun we share as members of this chapter.

Our chapter is comprised of members from Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. We are an independent chapter of ASHRM, the American Society for Healthcare Risk Management. If you are not a member of ASHRM, I encourage you to explore what they have to offer as our national professional organization for healthcare risk management. The easiest way is to check out their website at www.ashrm.org.

The mission of NNESHRM is to develop, advance and enhance the professional practice of healthcare risk management in order to promote the safety and quality of health services, while protecting the financial assets of health care facilities from preventable loss. We are dedicated to:

  • Conducting educational programs and activities to promote professional development in the area of risk management
  • Supporting the interchange of ideas and methodologies among health care professionals
  • Promoting professional relationships among Society members

Members of the society include risk managers, attorneys, insurance company representatives, brokers, quality improvement professionals, and patient safety team members dedicated to promoting the philosophy and strategy of risk management.

As a member of NNESHRM, you will have access to:

  • Educational Offerings to promote professional development in the diverse field of healthcare risk management. We plan our Spring Education Day will be June 15, 2020, and our Fall Education Day and Annual Meeting will be Nov. 16, 2020, in Freeport, both of these events are free to members. The fall meeting includes announcing the Board for 2021 and the winner the Polly Gagnon Award, which goes to chapter member who has distinguished themselves in promoting the chapter, the profession of risk management as a whole and in the development of other risk managers.
  • Reduced registration for Chapter members at the 30th Annual New England Regional Healthcare Risk Management Conference, to be held May 3 -5, 2020 in Mystic, CT. The Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Northern New England Associations join forces each year to sponsor this opportunity for education and networking. Outside of the national ASHRM conference, this is one of THE premier risk management conferences of the year. More information available here on the left of your screen . All educational offerings provide CEU’s approved by ASHRM for CPHRM, FASHRM and DFASHRM designations.
  • Access to this NNESHRM website (nneshrm.org), which is updated on a regular basis! On the site you will find all of the information about the Society, a listing of current Board members, a directory of members, and ways that you can participate in our activities and committees.
  • Access to emails which we use to communicate with our members, and for you to ask questions of your Society colleagues. Please set up your browser/firewalls to be able to receive these important communications. If you wish to send an email to our membership, please contact our Communications Co-chair, Lou Anne McLeod at [email protected], to have a question, risk management job posting, or news shared with the Society.

In this chaotic, fast-paced world of healthcare risk management, I have found membership in NNESHRM, and the vast resources of my fellow members to be priceless; I hope your experience will be similar. We are focusing on a 3 year strategic plan to increase our membership, outreach to members in more local venues, and support our members in more ways throughout the year. Please contact me, or any other Board Member, if you have a new idea or suggestion as to how NNESHRM can be of further benefit to you and your professional career. Please consider joining one of our committees, such as Education, Bylaws, or Membership.

Finally, I look forward to meeting you in person at one of our upcoming events!
