Please join me and the CMSNE chapter in congratulating Teri Treiger RN-BC, MA, CHCQM-CM, FABQAURP, CCM, on receiving the CMSA 2020 Case Manager of the Year Award.  Watch official CMSA announcement and acceptance.

Teri has been involved with CMSNE for over two decades. She has been instrumental in forming the organization and has stayed active in shaping it over the decades. We are so fortunate to have Teri supporting us.

As I said in my nomination letter:

“Teri is a prolific author, speaker and educator, generously sharing her knowledge and expertise with CM professionals and policy-makers. Her years of service at the local and national levels has undoubtedly had immense impact on the trajectory of our profession.

Teri remains an active member of CMSNE and generously mentors new leaders in our organization. Her experience as past president of CMSNE and CMSA, as well as the numerous industry positions and appointments she has held, provides invaluable insight that helps make our organizations successful. In todays’ terms Teri is an “influencer”.

A quick web search of “leadership qualities” returns thousands of results, however, there is one quality that is common to most of these lists, and that is “humility”.  Teri is the true model of humility. Her generosity of spirit and unselfish service to our industry are admirable and qualities we should all aspire to achieve."

This is an award truly deserved and long overdue.   Congratulations Teri!!!

Douglas Cushman, RN, CCM
CMSNE President, 2019-21
