The Congress on Healthcare Leadership is March 16-19, 2015 at the Hilton Chicago/Palmer House Hilton. Mark your calendar for the Chapter Leaders Reception on Tuesday, March 17, 6 pm to 7 pm in Boulevard A-C, 2nd floor, Hilton Chicago. Chapter award winners will be honored.
For those chapters whose boards and committees turn over in January, please send Zonda Zschau at firstname.lastname@example.org a new list for 2015. Please note their position and whether they serve on the board. Why do we need your list of volunteers?
Many of our chapters have developed board manuals that include position and committee descriptions, board orientation, nominating and recruiting policies and more. A board manual will provide a blueprint for running your chapter. Build on the work of other chapters! In ChapterLink we have several examples of board manuals you can use as a starting point.
Additionally, we will be offering four webinars focused on helping you create your own board manual. We suggest assigning one of your board members to head up this effort and attend the scheduled webinars.
