SHFM is pleased to showcase the class for the Julie Flik Rising Star Continuation Program. This program honors the memory of SHFM Past President and industry icon, Julie Flik. The Julie Flik Program is intended to allow those who have timed out of our Rising Star program to continue their involvement in SHFM.
