MHA Trustee Orientation Outlines Future Priorities and Effective Board Practices
Posted on August 17, 2017
During the 2017 American Hospital Association’s Annual Leadership Summit, one of the key messages from leaders and faculty was about how to use current disruption to solve challenges and shape the future. Leaders must embrace collaboration and transparency and be strong advocates for the health and well-bring of patients and communities.
To inform healthcare board members about the ways providers and the MHA are shaping the future, the MHA will hold a trustee orientation from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 26 at the Country Club of Lansing.
The orientation will begin with a briefing on the MHA’s advocacy, access to care and patient safety efforts. New hospital and health system CEOs are invited to join trustees for the MHA briefing. For those who attend only the MHA briefing, the session will adjourn at 10:30 a.m. The remainder of the day will consist of a trustee educational session on a board’s legal duties and responsibilities and how to use knowledge and teamwork to lead.
Trustees can register separately for either the MHA briefing or the governance educational session, or they can register to attend both sessions. There is no fee to attend the MHA briefing; however, a $25 fee is required to attend the governance session, which will include lunch. Registration forms should be submitted to Erica Leyko, and questions should be directed to Erin Steward at the MHA.
