Helpful with a Podcast: IL Association of Medicaid Health Plans
Feb 04, 2021 Season 1 Episode 27

This week’s guest is one of my long-time clients, Samantha Olds Frey from the Illinois Association of Medicaid Health Plans.  As CEO of IAMHP, Samantha is a staunch advocate for her members. She is responsible for coordinating legislative strategies, testifying before legislative committees, and working closely with state agency administrators to formulate and implement policies that positively impact members.

With all of that on her plate, Samantha has to intersect with a wide variety of stakeholders and she is constantly trying to find the best ways to connect the dots between everyone who needs to be abreast of the latest issues and understand the diversity of perspectives that are always present when you’re talking about healthcare policy.

One of the newest strategies that Samantha is using is a podcast, which she sees as an important part of the association’s communication strategy, but also as a tool to enhance the association’s membership experience.

ABOUT YOUR HOST

Yes, there is a “real” Joy in The Joy of Membership.

Founder & CEO Joy Duling has been working with leaders of associations, trade groups and nonprofits since 2005.

She has also walked the same journey, serving for nearly 10 years as the Executive Director of a membership-based nonprofit which she helped launch from scratch and led to annual revenues of more than $1M exclusively from membership contributions.

Joy has been widely recognized as a speaker, an online educator and a trusted advisor, twice winning the “Unsung Hero Award” from the National Association of Women Business Owners' Central Illinois Chapter. She holds a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a Master's Degree in Social Work with Specialization in Policy, Planning and Administration. She has extensive experience in strategic planning, team facilitation, change management, and association operations.

But beyond industry experience and education…

Joy Duling is the calm voice you want to have in the room when you, your team, or your board is overwhelmed by ideas and options.

She's a trusted resource at the other end of an email or phone call who knows the answer, or can find the answer, when it's not clear what to do next in your approach.

She's a planner of systems and driver of progress that helps your organization achieve stretch goals.

She's a gifted facilitator of conversation, collaboration and constructive growth. 

And she's approachable and results-oriented,  which makes it easy to shake loose of the old and start fresh on the new.
