On behalf of the talented and dedicated team of professionals at Cobbe Consulting & Management, I would like to share our sincere appreciation for the opportunity to represent the oldest Medical Association in Florida, the Duval County Medical Society. Our organization has been retained by the Board of Directors to provide administrative and executive support for the DCMS as of January 1st. Inheriting an organization on the rise, we are extremely thankful for this opportunity and the many contributions made by the outgoing CEO, Bryan Campbell. We wish Bryan well in his new position with the Colorado Medical Society and look forward to building upon the foundation created by previous leaders and administration.
The First Coast community should expect the same level of dedicated service and representation from the DCMS through this transition in administrative leadership. We are extremely pleased to announce the entire staff of the organization has been retained and will continue to serve the organization. The physicians throughout this region have been extremely well represented by Marissa Saftner, Sallie Baumann, and Kristy Williford. I am thrilled to have them join our team.
Our Association Management Company also has a proud history of representing physicians in Florida. With experience that ranges from the FMA to County Medical Societies and Specialty Societies, our diverse staff has wide ranging expertise in association management that will elevate the programs and services available to our DCMS members.
On a personal note, having witnessed the strength and leadership of the DCMS from afar over my past 20 years working in organized medicine, it is truly an honor to be given this responsibility. These turbulent times for medicine demand that we seek new avenues to represent the profession and provide tools for our members to succeed personally and professionally. I strongly believe we have the physician leadership and staff skills to address our challenges and chart an exciting future course for organized medicine on the First Coast.
We greatly appreciate your ongoing support and membership in the DCMS. We look forward to exceeding your expectations and continuing the legacy we inherit.
