NCHVP 2020 Conference

March 11-13, 2020

The Hawthorne Inn and Conference Center

Winston-Salem, NC 

President Message #3:

 Greetings to all NCHVP members!

Our three main areas of focus for this year are (1) continue to strengthen our membership and networking, (2) provide more opportunities for professional growth, efficiencies and effectiveness, and (3) internal communications for our organization (both written and spoken).  The second  meeting of the 2019.20 NCHVP Board is scheduled for Friday, September 27 via Webex conference call.  Agenda items will include review of fall summit agenda and final plans; committee reports; and preliminary planning for the NCHVP 2020 Conference scheduled for March 11-13, 2020.  If you have any ideas and/or questions that you would like for the Executive Board to add to the agenda, please send me an email on or before Friday, September 20.  (focus #3 - internal communications for our organization (both written and spoken). 

The Executive Board  continues to work on strengthening our membership and networking (focus #1)  and (focus #2) provide more opportunities for professional growth, efficiencies and effectiveness.    Fall summits will afford members to come together for networking and district meetings; and  the fall summit agenda is designed around  educational items of interest and need  requested by the membership.  Also, this year's certification program is open for applications until November 1, and a management development class is being offered on Friday, September 20 at UNC Rex Healthcare.  You will find registration information on the website.

Please remember to complete the NCHVP 2019 Benchmarking Survey.  If you did not receive an email from NCHVP with the survey link, please let me know.  Deadline for submission of survey responses is Wednesday, September 18.  The Benchmarking Committee will be analyzing survey data for presentation at each of the upcoming fall summits.  This information will be of value for you as an individual as well as for this year's NCHVP Education Committee to use in planning programs for our 2020 Conference in March, 2020.

Your board is here to serve - so please reach out to us and/or your district chair and let us hear from you as to your needs.  My philosophy is "that you only get out of an organization what you seek to get from it - so you have to participate and offer needs and suggestions as well - I think that's what we call "team effort"!   One of the most important ways that we can get value from NCHVP is use of our website which offers many opportunities for learning and networking among our fellow colleagues.  I admit that I must at times make myself go to the website, but the more that I use it - the more I find it helpful!

REMINDER:      Fall Summit dates are Friday, October 4 in Hickory and Friday, October 18 in Cary, NC - registration info is on this website!

Thank you,

Alice Whisnant, President, NCHVP
