VHHA hosts several yearly meetings for its membership. Each offers unique educational opportunities tailored for specific audiences. View our calendar to see these and other VHHA/VHREF educational offerings throughout the year.
This year is special in our Association’s history, as it marks the retirement of our current President, Larry Sartoris, who has been with VHHA for 38 years. Our new President, Sean Connaughton, will officially be presented to the membership as only the third President in our 88-year history.
We wanted to note a few schedule changes for this year’s meeting:
The HosPAC Golf Tournament will be held on Thursday, November 6, rather than on Wednesday, November 5.
There is a banquet on Thursday night.
This year's meeting features:
Quint Studer, A Culture of High Performance
Paul Keckley, A Closer Look at Public Trust in Healthcare
Ronan Tynan, Hitting the High Notes: Living Life to the Fullest
Deadline to register for the meeting is October 24. We look forward to seeing you at The Homestead!
Please join us as sponsor of the 88th Annual Meeting of the Membership, November 5-7, at The Homestead, Hot Springs, Virginia. Attendees include VHHA member hospital and health system CEOs, senior executives, trustees and others. While “88” years may not be a tremendous milestone in our Association’s history, this year does mark the retirement of our current President, Larry Sartoris, who has been with VHHA for 38 years. We expect a very large turnout of our current and former hospital and health system folks at this year’s meeting to celebrate.
Please note this registration is for VHHA institutional members (hospitals/health systems) only. Deadline to register is November 1. Sponsors please use the HosPAC 2014 Annual Meeting Golf Tournament Sponsorship registration.
Please join us as a sponsor for the 2014 HosPAC Annual Meeting Golf Tournament, Thursday, November 6, at 12 p.m. on the Old Course at The Homestead. New opportunities are available.
