Hello and welcome members, new members and guests to a new and exciting year for theHBA Atlanta chapter. We achieved numerous accomplishments in 2013 under the leadership of our immediate past president, Andrea Smith and I am excited to continue the momentum leading an award-winning HBA Atlanta chapter as we move forward in 2014.
We are a diverse group of professional women in the healthcare industry and welcome you to explore the offerings and benefits of investing in the HBA. Whether you work in the healthcare delivery, payer, IT, pharmaceutical, or biotech sectors, we have a place for you to connect, learn and grow. The HBA offers the opportunity to enhance your professional development through programming, mentoring, networking and volunteering.
In the Atlanta community, our chapter is recognized for its engaging monthly programming and networking events, an excellent mentoring program, and our wonderful annual signature event, Woman in Healthcare Leadership Award, recognizing the accomplishments of outstanding women in the healthcare community.
Celebrating its 35th year in 2014, the mission of HBA is to further the advancement and impact of women in healthcare worldwide
Each of the HBA chapters have the distinct advantage of being part of a growing network of women in the healthcare industry globally. With leadership development at its core, the HBA’s national leadership conference is held annually in November, and is a significant opportunity for members to engage, learn and network face to face with women who hold a similar passion for career growth, diversity and professional development. As an additional benefit, members can interact and engage in live webinars, local chapter programs and special events throughout the United States and Europe.
As we kickoff a new year, my hope is that you choose to make 2014 a year to personally invest in your professional development and invest in your career with the HBA Atlanta chapter.
I look forward to meeting you.
