From the Desk of the KAHCE President

Trenton Stringer

As you all found out, the KAHCE Annual Meeting and Fall Education fell victim to COVID again this year.  KAHCE’s Education Committee, under the leadership of Todd Willert, will be offering virtual Face-to-Face credits between now and the end of the year to make up for the Fall event. The education committee was able to offer a great, virtual panel discussion on September 8. The topic was “Reinventing Customer Service in Healthcare.” A special thanks to Jarrod Urban and Fred Neis on their work organizing that event. Be on the lookout for registration links that will be sent out as we have some great panels and topics lined up over the next couple months.

Kansas City Local Programming Council (KCLPC) will hosta virtual Face-to-Face panel discussion on October 6. The topic of discussion will be “Improving the Health Status of Your Community” with a diverse group of panelists. Should be a great event to attend! To register for this event, go to www.kahce.org

The KHA Convention is going to be virtual this year. The Convention will be held on Oct. 12 and Oct. 27 from 10:30a-4:30p. In addition to an amazing line-up of speakers, there will also be virtual networking roundtables worked into both days of the convention.  There will not be a virtual Trade Show portion this year. To register for this event, go to https://registration.kha-net.org/

The KAHCE Board of Directors will be meeting on November 12 for our strategic planning retreat. We look forward to seeing what initiatives we can bring to our members in this ever-changing environment.  I welcome your input on how we can make KAHCE more effective for you!  If you are looking to be more involved, we are looking for more Board members for KAHCE. If you are interested or know someone who would be a good fit, please reach out to Judy Corzine, Nominating Committee Chair.

KAHCE will present two awards this year, The Early to Mid-Career Leader Award and the Senior Executive Leader Award. As a reminder, the Early to Mid-Career Leader Award is for professionals under the age of 40. Please submit your nominations to Susan Pattie by October 20. Along with the name of the person you are recommending, send as much biographical information that you can.

As we round into the final quarter of the year, I hope everyone is able to safely spend time with your families and friends. I wish every luck with your continued operations as I know we are all feeling the stress from staffing vacancies as we try to recover from fluctuating volumes over the past year and a half. As many of you know, I am definitely an extrovert, and I look forward to when we can meet again truly FACE-TO-FACE! So stay safe and healthy and we will see you soon.
