The Rocky Mountain Association for Healthcare Resource and Materials Management is an affiliated chapter of AHRMM, devoted to the advancement of the healthcare supply chain.
What is RMAHRMM?
The Rocky Mountain Association for Healthcare Resource and Materials Management is the Utah Chapter of AHRMM.
We are a passionate group of individuals interested in advancing and understanding the healthcare supply chain. RMAHRMM members come from a diverse group of providers, suppliers, and GPO’s and share a common interest in professional development and industry advancement. Founded in January of 2014, the chapter has quickly grown from just an idea, to a robust group of people intent on providing benefit and value to its members.
The Vision of RMAHRMM
We will provide an effective means by which local supply chain professionals in the healthcare industry can network, find educational opportunities, receive recognition, and achieve industry-specific professional development.
Chapter membership is designed to be very accessible to all professionals in the Healthcare Supply Chain Industry, inclusive of suppliers, providers, students and faculty. Membership provides access to meetings, vendor fairs and events hosted by the chapter and ensures you receive important communications and education. National AHRMM membership is not required to be a member for the RMAHRMM, but is highly encouraged.Sign Up
