What is this conference?

       Connections 2009 is the Annual Conference for the Society for Healthcare
Strategy and Market Development, a personal membership group of the
American Hospital Association. The Annual Conference provides
comprehensive educational programming and networking opportunities for
healthcare executives in the areas of business development, communications,
marketing, planning, physician relations and public relations.

       Connections 2009 is the premier venue for healthcare strategy knowledge
acquisition. The four days of the SHSMD Conference is the most cost-effective
professional development choice I have all year. I experienced a full year of
benefits in the form of new and greater knowledge that I can apply directly to my
position.

Why Connections 2009?
        It is difficult for healthcare strategy professionals to find meaningful
training that can provide both breadth and depth in targeted disciplines. The
SHSMD conference(s) have proven, in my experience, to deliver the best value
in professional development. I have attended SHSMD’s Annual Conference
{years you’ve attended SHSMD } other times over the years and have found the
quality and quantity of educational value to be consistent and cost beneficial.
        In addition to the conference content, there are ongoing opportunities to
discuss emerging issues and best practices with other colleagues, vendors and
consultants across a broad continuum of healthcare issues. For example, in a
single venue, you can discover best practices from leading healthcare
institutions, investigate possible new service lines and talk one-on-one with
experienced vendor experts. In Special Interest Group sessions, you can swap
implementation tips and techniques and listen to others describe their
experiences implementing new ideas we might be considering. As past
attendees have described to a colleagues, the value of the networking
opportunities alone exceeds the price of admission.

What did I learn?
       To answer that question, I will provide a brief set of details for each of the
sessions that I attended over the 4-day conference. In addition, I will share the
conference proceedings by several means including presentations to work
groups within {your company name here}.
       As a prelude, the goals that I set before attending SHSMD comprised:

My participation met all the preceding goals in addition to providing the
opportunity to discuss healthcare marketing, communications and planning best
practices with many diverse executives.
