Farewell Letter from Dennis Bolin, Alliance Chief Experience Officer
Health Plan Alliance
Dear Alliance Colleagues:
After 50 years of receiving a paycheck, I look forward to retiring December 31, 2022 with a jumble of thoughts and emotions.
The first is gratitude for the opportunity to work for you these past 21 years. Maybe it is a cliché, but it is true: I woke up everyday excited to work for you. I have been reminded this past year as our team has been able to again visit many of your offices and to be with you at our meetings, how much I enjoy learning from you, being challenged by you, contributing to your efforts, and just hanging out.
I admire you. When I am researching one of your questions or organizing an Alliance project or facilitating a meeting, I am reminded of the importance of the work you do. Many of us are now several degrees removed from our final customers — it happens as our careers progress. So, I try every day to remind myself that our work makes a difference in the lives of our communities.
And to the Alliance team: I am honored to work with you. Whether I worked with you from day one or just this year, I am awed by your intellect, talent, and dedication to our members. I learn something from you every day.
Thank you for being my colleagues, my mentors, my teachers and my friends. Keep in touch!
Leave a farewell message for Dennis!
