HBA Phoenix wants to help you grow, learn and connect in 2019

Happy New Year HBA Phoenix,

The start of the year is a perfect time to reflect and examine long term professional/personal goals. Look beyond 2019. Map out a five year plan – setting milestones along the way. Long term goals will inspire you to do great things. Invest in growth, leadership skills and stay focused on life and experience. Goal setting is a skill to inspire you to reach personal success and achievement.

HBA Phoenix wants to be a part of your growth and connection. We have a designed a great platform with innovative programs for 2019. Soon we will publish a schedule of events locally that will promote the advancement and impact of women in the business of healthcare. We encourage new ideas and welcome all volunteers as we are excited to build HBA presence in Phoenix.

The HBA accomplishes its mission through strong business networks, education, research, advocacy and recognition for individuals and companies. Here are some of the ways to get the most of your membership while facilitating career and business connections:

Leadership and competency development: Grow experience through collaboration and connection. You’ll gain new skills that will prove beneficial in your current and future roles. HBA leadership competency framework: enlighten, empower, engage and evolve offers the greatest potential to further the advancement and impact of women in the business of healthcare.

Commitment to connections: We promote connectivity between the businesswomen in the Phoenix biotech, healthcare, medical and pharma industries. HBA Phoenix will offer both evening networking events and morning ConnectCafé events. Each networking event will feature a local member providing insight into their career, development pathway or organization. 
 
Knowledge is key: We will be providing important insights from key speakers who will be sharing their personal and professional experiences. Our goal is to have programs that educate, inspire and motivate current HBA Phoenix members to be influential and have an impact. 

Pledge to growth: There will be many opportunities to grow personally through various educational and motivational, growth-focused events. Our goal is to lead with energy and purpose in both our personal and professional life. We will work together to develop a mentor program in Phoenix as we move toward a chapter in 2019.  
 
Create and empower trailblazers: Use resources from the HBA to become innovators, creators and lifelong learners. We want to inspire, transform and build a path for others to follow. We will be providing many tools and prospects to connect, share, grow and take charge of their career trajectory. We hope you will take advantage of these opportunities to achieve your aspirations and greater success. 

Stake your claim, become a trailblazer and move forward with your plan. Get involved in HBA Phoenix and explore knowledge and activities that will help you reach your goals. 

I look forward to connecting and seeing everyone at our HBA Phoenix events.
