As the 2017 president of HBA Greater Philadelphia (GP), I’d like to personally invite you to attend the 2017 HBA Annual Conference, November 6-8 in our home city. It’s been seven years since the HBA Annual Conference was in Philly, and we’re excited to welcome our colleagues back. Over 1,000 healthcare leaders from across the globe will be coming to our city for the conference. The theme for this year is Transforming with G.R.I.T. (Gratitude. Resilience. Influence. Tenacity.) and this is a tremendous opportunity to showcase the GRIT of the leaders we have here in HBA GP.
Whether you are a conference veteran or first time attendee, the HBA Annual Conference is something every aspiring and continually improving female leader should experience. I am now in the double digits of how many I have attended and each one offered a unique value for me professionally. I always take away new learnings and connections from the presentations, educational offerings and unmatched networking opportunities. And don’t overlook the fun we have!
Join me and the 1,000+ expected attendees literally from around the world as we explore how to bring Gratitude, Resilience, Influence and Tenacity to life through pre-conference seminars, exciting main-stage (plenary) presentations by Angela Duckworth and Vernice "FlyGirl" Armour, more than 20 interactive workshops, multiple network-building opportunities and social events including a reception at Reading Terminal Market, sightseeing tours and more. The GP chapter is where Fit To Lead started and Philadelphia is the home of Rocky Balboa and running those Art Museum steps; don’t forget to pack your workout gear. You can join in morning workouts and informal networking opportunities.
Let’s show our global HBA members our HBA Greater Philadelphia G.R.I.T. I encourage you to register by June 30 to save $225. If you are not an HBA member, this is an excellent opportunity to join the HBA and grow with HBA Greater Philadelphia all year long.
I look forward to seeing you at the conference. Let me know if you register. We are going to have a blast!
