New Regional Education Model

Regional Education ModelOver the past year, DMEC has been evaluating our existing local chapter structure to determine the most effective way to provide focused education and networking to our members throughout the United States and Canada. After much analysis and consideration, DMEC has begun the process of restructuring our current chapter model to make way for a new educational model that will be introduced over the next year and a half.

The goal of this new model is to deliver premium educational content and meaningful face-to-face professional connections that more broadly serve the diverse geography of our members. In addition, we will be assessing how to integrate new technologies that address the evolving needs and learning styles of our community.

Chapter Transition

As part of this transition, the following DMEC chapters hosted their final meetings in 2017:

  • Central California (Modesto)
  • Colorado (Greater Denver)
  • Chicago (IL)
  • Georgia (Greater Atlanta)
  • Michigan
  • New England
  • Northern California (San Francisco)
  • Ohio
  • Oregon/Southwest Washington
  • Sacramento

The following DMEC chapters will continue to hold meetings through the end of 2018.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the many people who have served as chapter volunteers over the years for the time they have devoted to supporting this organization and its members. Their dedication has been crucial to the growth of both DMEC and the absence management industry.

Education Opportunities

Planning for the new educational model is already underway, and we will be providing updates as more details become available. As a reminder, there are several ways to continue to receive education during this transition period:
