Message from the President|
by Paul A. Jeffrey
Welcome to Summer 2010. We just completed our Spring Education Program on May 12, 2010 titled "How to Lead a Successful Multi-Generational Organization" that offered a 1.5 ACHE approved credits. The program was a big success. The topic, as well as the panel of expert local healthcare executives, was a major attraction leading to a great turnout from other healthcare executives from the majority of the health systems in the Triad.
The panelists and moderator did a phenomenal job in speaking about the many challenges and opportunities about having a multi-generational work force, and how important it is to cultivate a diverse organization. This was well received by the audience as evident from the feedback we got from the returned completed program evaluation forms. We had a response rate of more than 50%, and a tabulated rate of satisfaction with the program and panelist of 4.6 on a range of 1 to 5, five being Very Satisfied with the program and Excellent for the panelist and moderator.
Some of the other feedback we received was:
"Panelist group was very knowledgeable and some of the specific examples that were discussed were very helpful." "Very informative." "Audience participation added value to the meeting." "Great Meeting."
Other feedback we received was in reference to other topics of interest for our future Education Programs. A topic that seemed very popular and in demand was relevant to the new Healthcare Reform Law and it's impact on hospitals and hospital programs. We will look to possibly offer a program in the late summer on this same topic that seems to be on interest to many.
Thank you to all that participated in our program, and for those who did not we are sorry you missed it. We look forward to seeing you at our Summer program. In the meantime, have a great and safe summer.
