Benefits of Membership in GKCMMA

The Greater Kansas City Medical Managers Association (GKCMMA) is a not-for-profit corporation comprised of Administrators, Medical Managers, Allied Health Professionals, and Business Partners from in and around the Kansas City region.

HISTORY: The organization incorporated in October 1980 after a group of eight managers met to discuss networking and sharing information with Kansas City peers. They decided to meet monthly at a Westport restaurant to discuss issues and get answers. From these humble beginnings, the Greater Kansas City Medical Managers Association (GKCMMA) has grown to nearly 500 members.

OUR GOAL: Provide networking and continuing educational opportunities for our members. We continually strive to increase our benefits to members and provide a valuable service to the health care community of the Greater Kansas City area.

These organizations provide additional educational opportunities for our medical managers and exhibit opportunities for our partners.
