About the Western Wisconsin Chapter of IAHCSMM

Welcome to the Western Wisconsin Chapter of IAHCSMM!  The Chapter was established in 2009 by Lori Ferrer.  She had a vision to bring education to rural central, and western Wisconsin.


We've grown so much since then.

The first group of Board Members in 2009 were:

  • President: Lori Ferrer

  • President Elect: Mellisa Ndiaye

  • Secretary: Nancy Benish

  • Treasurer: Karen Gont

Since 2009, our membership included Central Sterilization professionals from hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, dental clinics and various private practice offices.


The goal of the Western Wisconsin Chapter is to stay abreast of the rapidly changing technology in our field.  We have bi-monthly meetings, spring workshops, fall retreats and tours of various facilities.  The Chapter also hosts speakers of diverse topics and offers Continuing Education to maintain certifications.

There are opportunities to become active board members, participate on committees, network with colleagues and earn points for paid trips to the IAHCSMM Annual Conference.  Best of all, we offer an opportunity to build lasting friendships.
