Why Attend?


Compelling subject matter and impressive speakers ensure our Forum attendees will gain knowledge to help them take action and create positive changes for their organizations. Our speakers have been invited to INSPIRE our attendees with INNOVATIVE strategies and PRACTICAL tools to help improve health and healthcare within our communities. Face-to-face experience, with the ability to ask questions and engage in conversation with experts, is a definite advantage. Our 2019 Forum is going to cut through the clutter and deliver a straight-forward, forward-thinking agenda.

Networking & Collaboration

Meeting your peers is powerful. We’ve become accustomed in the last decade to connecting online, but those connections are strengthened when we share an experience together. When we’re given the opportunity to speak face-to-face, a truly remarkable thing happens; we learn and grow in our commitment and connection. This familiarity breeds future partnerships and opportunities that have positive impacts in our region. You have the chance to meet someone you admire, or a future mentor.  

Encouragement & Inspiration

Being among peers will reignite your enthusiasm for your profession. You are not alone in your mission, your concerns, or your needs. Our Forum serves to provide a fresh perspective, and to take you out of your routine. This type experience is an impetus to change and improvement. Surrounding yourself with passionate people will encourage you to keep growing. Let this energy help fuel your next big strategies. 


You are worth every effort and sacrifice made to create the person you are and the person your organization needs. Investing in yourself reminds you of your worth, and it is always a solid investment. Conferences allow you to take a break from work and sharpen your skills so you can return to work with new ideas.

Vendor/Partner Evaluation

Our annual event includes other organizations that believe in the mission, and have the tools/resources/products to help you provide the solutions your company needs. Having access to speak one-on-one with many vendors will save you time, and offers the possibility of partnerships you wouldn’t have found through your own research. Don't underestimate the value of a hands-on demonstration or the ability to ask questions specific to your business struggles/needs.

Our annual event brings together human resource managers, benefit managers, health plan representatives, and health care professionals from the region’s leading businesses for networking and education on the latest health care trends and benefit issues. Add your voice to the conversation this year!
