Among the many benefits of Chapter membership are:

Networking opportunities where members have the opportunity to meet and interact with other medical managers to share information, concerns and problems.

Continuing education and other resources are provided at monthly meetings through informative speakers and discussions, addressing pertinent practice management topics.

All this is, of course, in addition to the camaraderie and friendships you develop as a member of the Baton Rouge Chapter.

Another benefit of membership is the possibility of future employment opportunities. Frequently, members know of an opportunity that is available.

HISTORY 

The Baton Rouge Chapter began in 1978. A cadre of four medical practice managers saw the need to establish an association for professionals in medical practice management. Their purpose was to create a forum where practice managers could gather to further their knowledge and profession­alism in the field. From that humble beginning, our present day organization now has over 75 active members.


The need for professionalism and structure became apparent as member­ship increased and the field grew in complexity. A formal constitution and bylaws were written in 1990. On October 1, 1991, by decree of the Secretary of State, the Baton Rouge Management Association was officially incorporated in the State of Louisiana.
