Include Your Hospital Trustees at This Year’s Rural Health Conference

April 28, 2017

Each year, the Wisconsin Rural Health Conference attracts nearly 100 hospital trustees from rural communities throughout the state, many of whom attend year after year. Those who attend find a wide range of education topics, as well as several targeted specifically at governance issues they address in their own organizations.

The 2017 Wisconsin Rural Health Conference, June 21-23, will include the governance-specific topics of succession planning and onboarding for a new senior leader; a trustee’s role in physician recruitment and retention; and understanding CMS and state surveys. New to the 2017 agenda is a luncheon specifically for hospital trustees, as a venue to network with other trustees and to learn more about WHA.

As you register yourself and your senior staff for this year’s conference, consider inviting your board of trustee members to come along. It’s a great way to expose them to national speakers, provide them targeted education, and spend time with them away from your hospital, all at a reasonable cost.

This year’s conference is centrally located at Glacier Canyon Lodge at The Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells. Online registration and a full conference agenda are now available at:
