The WSHA 2019 Annual Member Meeting is quickly approaching, accompanied by Governance Education Day and our first-ever Advocacy Bootcamp. We want to ensure that all our members have the information and resources ready to engage with the greater Washington health care community this fall.
The WSHA Annual Meeting and Governance Education Day, Oct. 9-10, is an incredible opportunity to see our members come together in person to empower one another and best serve Washington residents. Every year, health care leaders from across Washington collaboratively discuss a variety of topics. For the 2019 Annual Meeting, event programming includes advancing health equity, the importance of advance care planning, the role hospitals can play fighting issues such as human trafficking, a preview of the upcoming legislative session, cybersecurity and more!
Early bird registration for the Annual Meeting and Governance Education Day ends tomorrow. We will be joined by nationally renowned speakers, including NPR social correspondent and “Hidden Brain” podcast host Shankar Vedantam and authors Barbara Ehrenreich and Chris McChesney, so be sure to get your ticket! The conference registration price will increase from $399 to $449 when the early bird rate expires.
To kick-off this member gathering, WSHA will also host our first Advocacy Bootcamp at The Hyatt on Oct. 8. We are calling on hospital leadership, staff, nurses and physicians who want to take action and build a better health care system in Washington to engage with us and attend. Attendees will learn what hospital advocacy means, why it’s important and what it looks like – whether you’re meeting with lawmakers in Olympia or inviting legislators to your facility. Attendees will learn what hospital advocacy means, how to amplify their voice to support health care in their communities, and hear from legislators and experts in government relations. Online registration is now available.
I look forward to joining with you in collaboration and engagement!
