Trustee Member Forum Outlines Membership Strategies

The MHA will host a Trustee Member Forum from noon to 4:30 p.m. Nov. 2 at the MHA Headquarters in Okemos for trustees from MHA member organizations to explore the MHA’s 2022-2023 program year’s strategic action plan, which the MHA Board of Trustees approved in August.

This year’s strategic action focuses on the most pressing challenges and opportunities facing healthcare, including workforce development and wellbeing, health equity, behavioral health and financial stability. Hospital and health system board members are important stakeholders in achieving goals in each of these categories.

During the forum, a panel of Michigan hospital and health system CEOs will share their perspectives on how governing boards can reinforce strategies to help hospitals fund care, train and retain talent, identify and address gaps in disparities of care and develop early intervention and better crisis care for mental health.

Trustees can register for the MHA Trustee Member Forum for $75 per person. The forum will be the first event in more than two years for governing board members from Michigan to meet in-person and connect with trustees from across the state. Space is limited and registration will be confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis. The registration deadline is Oct. 26.

Members with questions may contact Erin Steward at the MHA.
