Two CAP staff members have taken on new and exciting roles as part of the board of directors for the California Medical Group Management Association (CAMGMA), an organization composed of medical group managers and people who provide services to medical practices.
CAP’s Vice President of Membership Development Daniel Cavanaugh was elected by CAMGMA to be President in 2019. This appointment follows years of active membership in several regional chapters as well as being a founding board member of the Central Coast Chapter. Additionally, CAP’s Public Affairs Analyst Gabriela Villanueva has joined the board as Legislative Liaison.
During his time at CAP and his ongoing role as Vice President of Membership Development, Mr. Cavanaugh has leveraged his expertise to partner with various IPAs, physician networks, and physician purchasing organizations around the state to introduce their members to CAP’s high-quality and cost-effective malpractice coverage.
“I am honored to lead this group of medical group administrators and professionals who are so engaged in the medical group practice management field,” said Mr. Cavanaugh. “I look forward to the collegial exchange of ideas and influencing the direction of the organization.”
Ms. Villanueva brings her experience and knowledge of the state and federal legislation-making process to her new role as Legislative Liaison. Working with CAP’s state and federal lobbyists, as well as the National Medical Group Management Association, Ms. Villanueva monitors and tracks bills throughout the legislative process and provides information and education on state and federal bills, as well as regulatory issues related, to their functions.
“Education on legislation is important and can improve the sharing of important information to the general public,” said Ms. Villanueva. “I look forward to using my expertise and working with the association to enhance the understanding of public policy as it relates to medical group management.”
