2019 Spring Conference and Annual Meeting
The WI HFMA 2019 Spring Conference and Annual Meeting in Appleton was a great success. The event opened on Wednesday evening at the Timber Rattlers Ballpark with beer, brats and baseball for everyone. Despite some cooler temperatures in the later hours, it was well attended and a great networking event.
Thursday morning kicked off with a rousing keynote by Ron Galloway on “The Disruptors” in the healthcare industry and held the audience riveted through all of his 200 plus slides. The day continued with multiple sessions on topics ranging from the future of accountable care, communicating to be understood, and, of course, our always popular and interesting H2O sessions. The educational sessions for the day concluded with a closing keynote by Lauren Schieffer on “Generations in the Workplace.” Thursday evening was a celebration of all of the volunteers, sponsors and past leadership of the Chapter, concluding with the installation of the 2019 -2020 Chapter Leadership and a President’s Reception for incoming President Matthew Streeter.
Friday kicked off with the Early Riser Coffee and Mentorship Program and a Brunch and Learn session on “Universal Health Care is Coming” by Douglas Trueck, Sr. The day concluded with a closing session on transparency and our door prize give away.
Thank you to everyone who attended and we look forward to seeing you all at our Fall Conference (September 18th -20th) in Madison.
Katie Boelter, Chair
